Knossos

The Throne Room in Knossos

The Throne Room in Knossos

The “Throne Room” at Knossos, heavily restored by Arthur Evans. It has been dated to the time of the presumed “Mycenaean” (mainland) takeover of Knossos (Late Minoan II). It is not clear if this room was really used by a king instead of a priest or priestess.

The Minotaur

The Minotaur, a half-bull creature that roamed the labyrinth of Knossos, is perhaps the best-known element of the myths surrounding the Athenian hero Theseus.
