As one of the Greek mythology's legendary heroes, many stories were attached to Theseus. He bested the Minotaur, and had an affair with Ariadne, a Kretan princess, whom he abandoned on Naxos Island.
Theseus also had a wife, Phaidra, who fell in love with Theseus' son, Hippolytos. When the feelings weren't mutual, Phaidra told Theseus that Hippolytos had violated her, and in anger Theseus invoked the god Poseidon. Poseidon sent a sea monster, and Hippolytos died in the Sinkholes of Herakles region of Argolis while driving in his chariot.
5th century BCE
- In some stories, Theseus is counted among the Argonauts.
- The tapestry depicting Theseus and Minotaur in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is based on a painting on a 5th century BCE stamnos.
