Draco Marble, ΤΗΕ ΜΥΤΗ

Draco Marble

Τhe Pindus Mountains took their name from the hero Pindus, the eldest  of the three sons of King Macedon. When King’ Macedon died, Pindus  succeeded to the throne. But his brothers were jealous of him and drove him away from the throne.  Pindus did not wish to harm his brothers and went to the mountains devoting all his time to hunting. Once he met a dragon (in Greek Δράκος) and became  his friend and each evening he carried half the spoils of his chase and lay it outside the dragon’s cave. Through years it seemed that extra good fortune  attended him in his hunting from that day on. All this made his brothers even more jealous than when he was king and they began to plot how they might murder him. Their chance came one day when he had gone out hunting alone. As he died, however, Pindus cried out once for help.The dragon in the great  cave heard that cry, recognized the voice of the man who had fed him so faithfully and came at full speed to see what was happening. When he  saw Pindus lying dead, bleeding from many wounds Draco turned onto his brothers and killed them.
