Minotaur, a fabulous monster, supposed to have had a human body and the head of a bull. He was confined in the Cretan labyrinth, and lived on human flesh. He was killed by Theseus, son of AEgeus, King of Athens, who volunteered to be one of the seven youths and seven maidens whom Minos, King of Crete, compelled the Athenians to send yearly to be devoured by this monster.
