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.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Europa graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Europa movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Europa statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Europa. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
