Immersed in a sea of mythology, the story of Theseus and the Minotaur is a compelling tale of the choices, trials, and tragedies that humanity faces. As one myth alludes to another and stories intertwine, we begin to discover the greater web of Greek mythology and discern the flow of ancient oral traditions.
