Theseus and Helen

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“In the year 1234 B.C., Theseus came to the throne of Athens. He was one of the most renowned characters in the heroic age of Greece, not only on account of his warlike achievements, but from his political wisdom. In the latter part of his reign he is said to have accompanied Hercules in one of his expeditions, and carried off the beautiful Helen, daughter of Tyndarus, king of Lacedaemon.” — Goodrich, 1844
