Thassos Snow White Marble, ΤΗΕ ΜΥΤΗ

Thassos Snow White Marble

According to Greek Mythology, the island was discovered by Thassos. Thassos was said to be the son or grandson of Aginor King of the Phoenicians at the city Tyros.Zeus transformed himself into a bull and abducted Europa who was the sister of Thassos. So it is said that her father Aginor sent her four brothers to find her. They tried to find her all over Greece.Thassos discovered the island in the course of his search for Europa.Captivated by its marvelous climate and lush vegetation and unable to return without Europa, he gave up his quest. He and his retinue settled on the island, which since then has been known by his name as “Thassos”.Herodotus, the greatest historian of antiquity, is categorical on this matter. He says the island is “now called after that Phoenician Thassos”.
