The most famous monster in all mythology is the Minotaur, as he is very strong and very terrible at the same time. According to Greek tradition, the Minotaur is a monster with the body of a man and the head of a bull. This creature came from the unnatural love of Pasiphae, the wife of King Minos, for the bull sent by Poseidon. This is a prominent figure who often appears in mythology, fantasy stories and novels. In addition, the Minotaur is depicted on the throne in Amikla and on numerous vases. We can typically see the Minotaur as a character in films, cartoons and video games.
The Minotaur began life peacefully enough, but, coming out of infancy, he became ferocious. Greek legends described him as a monster of great stature, with the body of an athlete and a bull’s head.
