Historical and cultural perspectives on zoophilia

In Greek mythology, Androgeus (also known as Andregeos) was the father of Sthenelus and a son of Minos and Pasiphaƫ. Aegeus, King of Athens, killed Androgeus because he won every prize during a feast. As punishment, the Athenians had to send several youths every nine years to be devoured by the Minotaur. This continued until the Minotaur was killed by Theseus.
