According to the myths, the Minotaur was a mighty monster - part man, part bull, who was kept in a labyrinth constructed by Daidalos (father of Icarus) that was supposedly impossible to escape from. The creature was sent ‘tributes’ in the form of young humans he would destroy and it was believed that no mortal could slay him… But the hero Theseus declared he would exchange places with one of the intended victims. He smuggled a sword past the guards and took a ball of thread, given to him by Ariadne. He tied one end to the door of the maze and prepared to face the Minotaur… Of course, details of the story vary, but all agree that Theseus managed to slay the creature and escaped the labyrinth by following the twine.
