Day 2 and 3

This is a double entry because I have no idea how Dionysus got my attention. That’s what the topic of day 2 is supposed to be.

Ariadne and Dionysus(1)

Day 3 is may favorite story About Dionysus.  That would be Dionysus and Ariadne. Ariadne was a Minoan princess, daughter of King Minos and sister of the Minotaur.  She apparently fell in love with the Athenian, Theseus. She helped him kill her brother after he promised to take her to Athens. He took her as fer as Naxos before abandoning her while she was sleeping.

Dionysus found Ariadne and eventually they were married and had children. They were named Oenopion, Staphylus, Thoas,  Peparethus, Phanus, Eurymedon, Enyeus, Ceramus, Maron, Euanthes, Latramys and Tauropolis.  Sometime later Ariadne was either murdered by Perseus, A hAlf brother of Dionysus, or she hung herself .  Some time after that Dionysus went to Hades and got her back.
