Mykonos mix 2


The island was, according to Greek mythology, named after Mykonos- its first ruler and a local hero, who was also the son of Anios (the king of Delos) and the grandson of the god Apollo. It is believed that the famous battle between Zeus and the Titans took place on this island.
Mykonos, according to the myth, is a big rock that Hercules (somewhere it's mentioned Poseidon, the god of the sea) threw on the Giants, killed them and buried under the blocks of granite. It's said that the rocks which exist around the island today are the petrified corpses of the Giants...

Ostrvo je, prema grckoj mitologiji, dobilo ime po svom prvom vladaru i lokalnom heroju Mikonosu koji je bio sin Aniosa (kralja Delosa) i unuk boga Apolona. Veruje se da se bas na ovom ostrvu odigrala cuvena bitka izmedju Zevsa i Titana.
Mikonos je, prema mitu, jedna velika stena koju je Herkul (negde se spominje i bog mora Posejdon) bacio na Gigante, usmrtio ih i zakopao ispod blokova granita. Za stene oko danasnjeg ostrva kazu da su okamenjena tela Giganata...
