  • About acts of love and gentleness:

    Poseidon sends a gift to Minos, a white bull as sacrifice.
    Passifae, hidden in wooden heifer, she mates with the bull.
    Asterion was born from it, healthy and strong, but with a deformed head.
    Daedalus elaborates the magnificent building of Knossos, a thick system of decorated rooms and corridors.
    Athenians massacre Androgeus because of their envy; as punishment, every year, they have to make a selection of some virgins as meal for the Minotaur.
    Ariadne elaborates a stratagem to save Theseus, and then she leaves with him toward Athens.
    Abandoned from Theseus on Naxos' island, Ariadne kills herself; Dionysus marries her, and he transform her into a constellation.
    Ships, back from Crete, forget to change the black sails. Aegean, thinking his son is dead, he throws himself into the sea.
    Dionysus Zagreus, the successor of Zeus, is broken into pieces in the form of bull from the Titans.
    Black bulls are sacrificed for Hades, Lord of the underground lands.
    Zeus exterminates the Titans under an impressive storm of thunderbolts; men are born from their ashes.



    Degli atti d’amore e di garbo:

    Poseidone invia in dono a Minosse un toro bianco da sacrificare.
    Passifae nascosta in una giovenca di legno, si accoppia col toro.
    Nasce Asterione, forte e in salute, la testa deforme.
    Dedalo elabora il mirabile edificio di Cnosso, una fitta rete di stanze e corridoi decorati.
    Gli ateniesi massacrano per invidia Androgeo; come punizione ogni anno devono fare una cernita di vergini come pasto per il Minotauro.
    Arianna elabora uno stratagemma per salvare Teseo, e poi parte con lui verso Atene.
    Abbandonata da Teseo sull’isola di Nasso, Arianna si uccide; Dioniso la prende in sposa, trasformandola in costellazione.
    Le navi di ritorno da Creta si dimenticano di cambiare le vele nere; Egeo credendo il figlio morto, si getta in mare.
    Dioniso Zagreo, successore di Zeus, viene fatto a brani sotto forma di toro dai Titani.
    Ad Ades, sovrano delle terre inferiori, si sacrificano i tori neri.
    Zeus stermina i Titani sotto una pioggia imponente di saette; dalle loro ceneri nascono gli uomini.
