Minos welcomes a victim to Knossos.

Glaucus (GLAW-kus). Son of King Minos of Crete. So vast was Minos's palace of Knossos that when Glaucus turned up missing one day the king had to send for a visionary to locate him. The seer, Polyeidus, found the boy smothered in a jar of honey. Minos insisted that he restore Glaucus to life. This the seer accomplished, only to discover that instead of a reward Minos insisted he teach Glaucus all his mystical skills.
