FIRST GREEK MYTHSTheseus and the man-eating monster
By Saviour Pirotta
The king Minos of Crete was evil and kept a monster called Minotaur in a huge maze. The Minotaur had a half bull half human body and was fed humans by King Minos who forced the King of Athens to send 7 women and men to Crete or he would make war to Greece. The King of Athens had a son called Theseus who wanted to go to Crete to kill the beast. The King told him he could. He gave his son a white sail to put on his ship if he came home safely. He went too Crete and went in to the maze with no sword.
