Pasiphae was the beautiful wife of Minos
. Minos was an Athenian who passed judgement on sinners in the underworld.
After Minos had a dispute with the Sea-God Poseidon
, Pasiphae was made to fall in love with a powerful bull.
The result of this love was the fabled Minotaur
which ravaged the countryside before being ultimately killed by Theseus
