The Palace of Minos was destroyed, but the Minoan civilization was restored almost immediately on top of the ruins of the past, and indeed the culture reached its peak only after the desolation.
The Palace of Minos became the living witness of what had taken place from the time Daedalus had been commanded by King Minos to build a labyrinth that would shelter his son which is a Minotaur. There are signs of the double axes on the massive walls which tells of the story that Theseus, the prince of Athens might have killed the Minotaur that was confined in the labyrinth for a long time. King Minos’ daughter fell in love with Theseus which gave her the guts to provide him a ball of thread which he unwound as he enter the labyrinth for him to find his way back to her by following it. Theseus victoriously killed the Minotaur and took Ariadne with him and fled. The sign of the double axes was used throughout the Mycenaean world as an apotropaic mark. The presence of this mark on an object would prevent it from being killed or destroyed. Axes were scratched on many of the stones of the palace. It appears in pottery decoration and is a motif of the Shrine of the Double Axes at the palace, as well as of many shrines throughout Crete and the Aegean.
