Gortys Plane-Tree

Gortys Plane-Tree

According to myth, Zeus, in the form of a beautiful white bull, copulated with Europa on the banks of the Letaeus under the shade of a plane-tree, which has never lost its leaves since. From this union, she bore him three sons: Minos, Rhadamanthys and Sarpedon, born at the exact same spot under the tree.
