Minos' Family

Many of Minos’s brothers, sons and grandsons fled Crete for different areas of the Mediterranean, and voyaged as far as Ireland. New cities were established, several of them being called Minoa. Many myths associated with these cities have their roots in the time that the Minoan fleet dominated the Mediterranean. These myths originated in the golden time of Cretan civilization, named after Minos, that endured for thousands of years.
