Greek legendary mortal

Lover of Zeus in bull mode

The daughter of POSEIDON son King Agenor, she must have had that special something as ZEUS fancied her like crazy.

He was so keen that when all else failed he had his willful way with her in the guise of a bull.

Naturally there was fecundity. Three sons, one of whom became MINOS King of Crete. ZEUS also gave her three magic gifts, including the intriguingly robotic bronze man Talos.
