Europa

???










The daughter of the Phoenician king Agenor grandchild of Zeus and Telephaessa, and a sister of Cadmus, Phoenix and Cilix. She was of such striking beauty that Zeus changed himself into a beautiful bull with golden horns and abducted her to Crete, to Gortyna or to the Dictean cave where from this union they had three sons, Minos, Rhadamanthus and Sarpedon. Zeus granted to Europa three gifts, the giant Talos made of bronze whose one vulnerable spot was a vein in his heel, a dog from which no prey could hope to escape, and a quiver of arrows that never missed their mark. Europa subsequently married the king of Crete Asterios who adopted her sons. [pp. 62-63]
