MINOS

King of Crete, and later spirit of Underworld Justice.

Definitely not a God, but determined to get into the record books what with his MINOTAUR and being a love child of ZEUS. His wife was PASIPHAE and their daughter was ARIADNE. Plenty of heroic legends there.

After he died, MINOS was given a new lease of life. Sitting by the side of AEACUS and previously estranged brother RHADAMANTHUS, he gives the casting vote in tricky cases of Soul Judgment.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Minos graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Minos 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 Minos statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Minos. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
