Zeus, the father of Gods, fell in love with a beautiful princess from Phoenicia named
Europe. Her name implied that she had great eyes and wide forehead. He
approached the lady of his heart, disguised into a white bull, as she played with her
fellowship on a coast of her country.
The girls, bewitched by the beauty of the robust animal and as it seemed quite friendly, caress and play with the bull and at some point, Europe tries to ride it. The moment has come for Zeus; the bull suddenly rushes to the sea and abducts her, despite her tears and cries and through the waves of the Mediterranean he carries the woman that he loves to Crete.
Three wonderful men come to life of Zeus’ and Europe’s bond: Sarpidon, Radamanthus and Minos and they, by their turn, give birth to a wonderful period of archeology - The Minoan Era.
