Athens got its name from Athena.    Poseidon wanted the city named after him.  So Athena and Poseidon both gave the town gifts.  Athena gave the Athens a beautiful tree.  And Poseidon gave them a bunch of water.  After a long pause they decided to call the place Athens.

The Minotaur

The Minotaur, in Labyrinth, is vicious and interesting. The Cretans would even sacrifice seven youths and seven maidens each year to the Minotaur. The Minotaur is half man and half bull. Many monuments were made because of the Minotaur. This is because they thought that an earthquake was really just the Minotaur making angry rattles all over the earth.
