The temple and oracle of pasiphae at Thalamae was of peculiar sanctity.
Phaidra, daughter of Minos and pasiphae, who married Theseus.
It was these profaner images that inflamed Phædra and pasiphae.
pasiphae (Pasiph′ae) was the reputed mother of the Minotaur killed by Theseus.
It is beyond a doubt that in Egypt many women set the same example with goats, as pasiphae did with her bull.
On the ceiling were painted the amours of pasiphae and the bull.
