The story behind the Temple of Poseidon
According to mythology, the king of Athens Aegeus leapt to his death of the cliff in Sounio, giving his name to the Aegean sea because he though that his son Theseus was dead. Every year the Athenians had to send to King Minos in Crete seven men and seven women as a tribune.
They were placed in a Labyrinth and they were eaten by a creature that was half human, half bull called Minotaur. That year Theseus volunteered to go to Crete in order to kill Minotaur. He said to his father that if he won on the way back his ship will have white sails if he was dead it would have black sails. Although he killed Minotaur he forgot to change the colour of the sails to white letting his father believe he was dead.
