Theseus using leverage.

Renault, Mary. British author of novels bringing the Greek myths to vibrant life, among them The King Must Die and The Bull From the Sea, which concern the hero Theseus. Renault infused her books with realistic details. She suggested that Theseus would have used a lever rather than brute force to look beneath the boulder for the tokens left by his father.
