Thassos a Paradise on Earth








The God Zeus lusting after the Princess Europa, daughter of the Phoenician King Aginoras, transformed himself into a bull, abducted her, and carried her off. The King sent his sons, and his grandson Thasus, to search for her, with orders to not return empty handed. Eventually Thasus came across the island of Aethria, a verdant jewel set in the most northerly part of the Agean Sea.


Its rich deposits of gold, silver, copper, lead, iron and marble, plus its abundant supply of timber, convinced him to settle there with his party. The island was subsequently known as Thassos. Meanwhile, Zeus and Europa attempted to populate Crete, the land of the Bull Cult, with Gods and demi Gods.
