Siols and the Golden Deer

A myth submitted to the site by Tamara Minea

Naxos, Greece

This is a tale about a brave man who has been chosen to rescue the Golden Deer. Zeus and Aphrodite warned him it was going to be a tough journey, but the brave man called Silos accepted. Zeus gave him a partner, his partner was called Cerverainian. The island they were directed to go to was called Naxos.

As Silos took off with Cerverainian in the boat, the water started to tremble. In the middle of the Aegean Sea he saw something moving… In the next second, SPLASH!!! A humongous sea-monster was about to attack! Cerverainian flew up in the sky and threw his big hammer at the sea-monster. The sea-monster was dead. He was not as strong as he looked.

The two finally got to the island and saw a huge castle. They both knew that this was the place where the Demon was hiding. They climbed through the window, but what they didn’t know was that it was the mighty Demon’s room which they climbed in. Over there they saw the most beautiful thing on earth, it was the Golden Deer. They tried to grab it, but the Demon woke up. Silos told Cerverainian to take the Deer and run.

Aphrodite and Zeus were just about to lose hope when Silos and Cerverainian turned up. Silos was nearly dead because when he jumped out of the window the Demon threw an arrow at him. The Gods were very happy to get the Deer back, but it was too late to thank Silos, he died. At least he died peacefully…
