 31 December 18:00   We accept apparent in the adventure of Theseus how Ariadne, the babe of

    King Minos, afterwards allowance Theseus to escape from the labyrinth,

    was agitated by him to the island of Naxos and was larboard there

    asleep, while Theseus pursued his way home after her. Ariadne,

    on alive and award herself deserted, alone herself to

    grief. But Venus took benevolence on her, and consoled her with the

    promise that she should accept an abiding lover, instead of the

    mortal one she had lost.

    The island area Ariadne was larboard was the admired island of

    Bacchus, the aforementioned that he admired the Tyrrhenian mariners to carry

    him to, if they so treacherously attempted to create cost of

    him. As Ariadne sat black her fate, Bacchus begin her,

    consoled her and create her his wife as Minerva had prophesied to

    Theseus. As a alliance present he gave her a aureate crown,

    enriched with gems, and if she died, he took her acme and

    threw it up into the sky. As it army the gems grew brighter

    and were angry into stars, and attention its anatomy Ariadne s

    crown charcoal anchored in the blast as a constellation, between

    the admiration Hercules and the man who holds the serpent.

    mistakes in his mythology. It was at the marriage of Pirithous,

    and not Theseus, that the Centaurs and Lapithae quarrelled.

    "Look how the acme which Ariadne wore

    Upon her ivory forehead that aforementioned day

    That Theseus her unto his conjugal bore,

    When the adventurous Centaurs create that blood-soaked fray

    With the angry Lapiths which did them dismay;

    Being now placed in the firmament,

    Through the ablaze heaven doth her beams display,

    And is unto the stars an ornament,

    Which annular about her move in adjustment excellent."
