In Greek mythology Minos (/ˈmnɒs/ or /ˈmnəs/; Greek: Μίνως, Minōs) was the first King of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa. Every nine years, he made King Aegeus pick seven young boys and seven young girls to be sent to Daedalus‘ creation, the labyrinth, to be eaten by the Minotaur. After his death, Minos became a judge of the dead in the underworld. The Minoan civilization of Crete has been named after him by the archaeologist Arthur Evans. By his wife, Pasiphaë (or some say Crete), he fathered Ariadne, Androgeus, Deucalion, Phaedra, Glaucus, Catreus, Acacallis and Xenodice. By a nymph, Pareia, he had four sons, Eurymedon,Nephalion, Chryses and Philolaus, who were killed by Heracles in revenge for the murder of the latter’s two companions; and by Dexithea, one of the Telchines, he had a son called Euxanthius.[1] By Androgeneia of Phaestus he had Asterion, who commanded the Cretan contingent in the war between Dionysus and the Indians.[2] Also given as his children are Euryale, possibly the mother of Orion with Poseidon,[3] and Pholegander, eponym of the island Pholegandros.[4]

Minos, along with his brothers, Rhadamanthys and Sarpedon, was raised by king Asterion (or Asterius) of Crete. When Asterion died, his throne was claimed by Minos[5] who banished Sarpedon and, according to some sources, Rhadamanthys too.
