Minos of Crete


Minos was the son of Zeus and Europa and king of Crete prior to the Trojan War. He was a heroic and just king who built up Crete’s navy. Said to have built the Labyrinth to contain the Minotaur, Minos died in Sicily when the daughter of the King of Agrigentum poured boiling water over him in the bath.
