Cadmus and his brothers went to search for Europa.
His father said not to return without her.
Cadmus went to the city of Delphi.
He asked Apollo were she was
Told him not bother with finding her but, to fallow a heifer and build a city where she rested.
First he had to fight and kill a terrible dragon who guarded a nearby spring.
Athena told him to sow the dragons teeth into the earth.
An army of men sprang up from the furrows.
With there aid they build Thebes.
Herodotus introduced the alphabet to Greece.
Cadmus married Harmonia.
The daughter of Aphrodite and Ares.
King Laius was king of Thebes.
He married his cousin Jocasta.
A prophecy was said to Laius from Apollo, god of truth.
It said that he would be killed by his son
He bound his son and left him on a mountain.
The king then died.
There were seven champions marching against Thebes, lead by Polyneices, and seven defending it, lead by Eteocles.
Athens won the battle, but all they did was take the dead and leave the city.
As the Thebans fled their city was leveled to the ground. All that was left was Harmonia’s necklace.
