-In [[Greek mythology]], '''Europa''' ([[Greek language|Greek]] Ευρώπη) was a [[Phoenicia|Phoenician]] woman of high lineage, from whom the name of the [[continent]] [[Europe]] has ultimately been taken. The story of her [[abduction]] by [[Zeus]] in the form of a bull was a Cretan story, as Kerenyi points out; "most of the love-stories concerning [[Zeus]] originated from more ancient tales describing his marriages with goddesses. This can especially be said of the story of Europa." The name Europa occurs in the list of daughters of primordial [[Oceanus]] and [[Tethys (mythology)|Tethys]]; the daughter of the earth-giant [[Tityas]] and mother of [[Euphemus]] by [[Poseidon]], was also named Europa.+
