Taurus has been immortalized on the cave walls of Knossos. The bull was worshipped in this ancient city. When the ancient Greeks thought about Taurus they also considered the Minotaur of Crete and the god Zeus. Zeus is said to have turned into a white bull to seduce a woman, Europa (he also turned into a swan to seduce Leda). It is odd that the Egyptians drew the sun as a white bull with a disc between its horns. Osiris, the Egyptian God of the Dead and the Underworld was shown in drawings with a bull’s head.
