Mythology


europa and zeus

Europa and the bull, depicted by Jean-Fran├žois de Troy

According to the Greek Mythology, Zeus was enamored of Europa and decided to seduce her. He transformed himself into a tame white bull and visited Europa while she was gathering flowers with her helpers.

Europa saw the bull, caressed his flanks, and eventually got onto his back. Zeus took that opportunity and ran to the sea and swam, with her on his back, to the island of Crete. He then revealed his true identity, and Europa became the first queen of Crete. After her loss, Zeus honored her as a Goddess with the name "Ellotis".

When they arrived to Crete, they located in the city of Gortys. This ancient city is mentioned in Homer as being one of the seven Cretan cities to take part in the Trojan War. Today Gortys is an administrative division of Heraklion and includes Platanos, the village where this superior category olive oil comes from.
