In Myth

Minos attacked Athens after his son was killed there. The Athenians asked for terms, and were required the sacrifice of seven young men and seven maidens every nine years to the Minotaur. One year, the sacrificial party included Theseus, a young man who volunteered to come and kill the Minotaur. Ariadne fell in love at the first sight of him, and helped him by giving him a magic sword and a ball of the red fleece thread she was spinning, so that he could find his way out of the Minotaur’s labyrinth.

She ran away with Theseus after he achieved his goal.


  • Theseus abandoned Ariadne sleeping on Naxos, and Dionysus discovered and wedded her.
  • With Dionysus, she was the mother of Oenopion.
  • She remained faithful to Dionysus, but was later killed by Perseus at Argos.
  • Dionysus however descended into Hades and brought her back and they then joined the gods in Olympus.
