Theseus and the Minotaure

This is the famous story of Theseus. He leaves Athens to go to Crete, where the Minotaure asks the tribute of 7 young women and 7 young men from Athens every year. Theseus has to figth against the monster to make his town free. Ariadne, daughter of the Cretan king, will help him to go out of the labyrinth where the Minotaure lives. The hero will kill him and thanks to Ariadne will find the exit. The girl will leave Crete with Theseus, but Dionysos will rape her, because he loves her.
