Ariadne in Naxos

Ariadne-Daughter of Minos.

Spread the love

According to Greek Mythology, Ariadne was the daughter of Pasiphae and the Cretan king Minos. She fell in love with the Athenian hero Theseus. When Theseus killed Minotaur(a monster ) then Ariadna helped him to escape from Labyrinth with a thread or glittering jewels.

According to some story, when the ship of Theseus stopped at the island of Naxos on the way back home, he abandoned Ariadne there, and Ariadne hanged herself.

But other story says when Theseus abandoned her then she was seen by the god Dionysus.

Dionysus instantly fell in love, and when Ariadne woke up, he asked her why she was so said about losing a faithless mortal when she could be his wife. She accepted Dionysus as her husband and also found out that Dionysus was a god. They had a happy married life with many children together. She became the immortal wife of the wine-god Dionysos.

Other stories say that Dionysus said Theseus to leave Ariadne on the island.

Ancient Greek poets and artists always liked to portray ‘The Minos Daughter’ who fell asleep on the shore of Naxos while God Dionysus gazed at her and fell in love.

In ancient art, she often appeared as the wife of Dionysus, sometimes with their children.
