Honey

Honey

In ancient Crete, Melissa, was a mountain-nymph that hid Zeus from his father, Cronus, who was intent on devouring his progeny. She fed Zeus goat’s milk from Amalthea and fed him honey, giving him a permanent taste for it even once he came to rule on Mount Olympus. Cronus became aware of Melissa’s role in thwarting his murderous design and changed her into an earthworm. Zeus, however, took pity and transformed her into a beautiful bee. Recent developments in DNA analysis has allowed researchers to reveal fascinating details about what the original inhabitants of Knossos and other Minoan settlements had for dinner. Clay pots with traces of honey, indicating that honey was an essential part of the diet of Ancient Cretans and the only known sweetening substance for many centuries.
