Abstract

The cry of Eriboea, touched by Minos, triggers the conflict between the king of Crete and Theseus. Minos considers Eriboea a slave. A female slave in the Greek society was not in a position to refuse the sexual demands. As a protector and a legal guardian of the fourteen youngs, doomed to be sacrificed to the Minotaur, Theseus, heeded Eriboea's cry, rebukes Minos. He assumes that the youths Athenians are not slaves and he cannot permit Minos to force one of them aekonta. Theseus asserts that women have equal rights compared with men.
