PREMIERE | Miss Monique & Two Are – Emerald (Original Mix)
In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth (Greek: Λαβύρινθος, Labýrinthos)[a]was an elaborate, confusing structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur, the monster eventually killed by the heroTheseus. Daedalus had so cunningly made the Labyrinth that he could barely escape it after he built it.
Coeus – Echoes (Original Mix)
Labyrinth is a word of pre-Greek origin whose derivation and meaning are uncertain. Maximillian Mayer suggested as early as 1892 that labyrinthos might derive from labrys, a Lydian word for “double-bladed axe”.Arthur Evans, who excavated the palace of Knossos in Crete early in the 20th century, suggested that the palace was the original labyrinth, and since the double axe motif appears in the palace ruins, he asserted that labyrinth could be understood to mean “the house of the double axe”. The same symbol, however, was discovered in other palaces in Crete.Nilssonobserved that in Crete the double axe is not a weapon and always accompanies goddesses or women and not a male god.
