The Myth of Ariadne

Ariadne, is an ancient Greek name which means utterly pure. Ariadne was a mythological princess known for helping Theseus slay the Minotaur. She provided Theseus with a ball of thread which helped him enter and exit the labyrinth.

Ariadne fled her birthplace, Crete with Theseus, only to be abandoned in the island of Naxos in the Aegean Sea.

One of the twelve gods Dionysus, had seen her and amazed by her beauty had told Theseus to leave her, as it was her destiny to become a god’s wife. Dionysus gave her a gift of a gold plated olive wreath and brought her to Olympus to become his immortal wife.

    Can you please reconfigure your website so that people interested in OUT OF STOCK items (pomegranate syrup, for example) get an email that the item is again available for purchase. Many other companies do this. We bought the Hazelnut Honey for years at our neighborhood Vios so we miss that convenience.
