#AtoZChallenge: Minotaur

M

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. Β It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. Β πŸ™‚

 

Today’s lucky creature comes from Greek mythology once again. It’s the Minotaur. Β It’s rumored that the Minotaur had the head of a bull on the body of a human man. Asterion was the proper name used for the minotaur in Crete. The name was shared with King Minos foster father. The minotaur was eventually killed by Theseus. To read more about the minotaur check out the wiki page here.

  1. he did indeed – I always felt a little sorry for the beastie when I was a girl – to be locked up in a maze underground and be reviled because he killed people seemed unjust to me – I would have killed people if that was my life as well:)

  2. Minotaurs fascinated me when I studied Greek mythology. Popping by from A to Z. You have a wealth of info. Good hopping with the other hop!
