Ancient Greece Test: Legend 1#

Ancient Greek legends is one of my favorite concepts in the entire study of Ancient Greece. I favor the heroes, particularly Odysseus, Herakles and Theseus, a brave hero who you will be asked questions about in this test.

The legend of Theseus and the Minotaur is an old and famous one. It explains the brutal orders from the Minoan and the heroic deeds of the Athenians. This quiz will test your knowledge upon this legend.
