Europa and Zeus

Europa, in Greek mythology, daughter of Agenor, the Phoenician king of Tyre, and sister of Cadmus, the legendary founder of Thebes.
The rape of Europa

One morning, when Europa was gathering flowers by the seashore, the god Zeus saw her and fell in love with her.

Assuming the guise of a beautiful chestnut-colored bull, he appeared before her and enticed her to climb onto his back. He then sped away with her across the ocean to the island of Crete.

Among the sons she bore him were Minos and Rhadamanthus, both of whom became judges of the dead.

The abduction of Europa has been the subject of many paintings, including "The Rape of Europa" by the Italian painter Titian.
