In Greek mythology, the son of the Athenian Daedalus, exiled to Crete, is mainly known as Icarus. He stayed with his father in the courtyard of Minos, who had commissioned the skilled and versatile Daedalus to build the Labyrinth, to imprison the Minotaur in it. After a while, however, Daedalus fell out of favor with the king, who also imprisoned the builder of the Labyrinth inside his construction. However, he managed to escape, activating his intelligence. He made wings for himself and for Icarus, with which the two men flew into the sky and flew away from Crete. Daedalus arrived in Kamikos, Sicily, where King Kokalos lived. Icarus, despite the advice and instructions of his father, who told him not to approach near the sun, flew to great heights. So his wax wings melted from the solar heat and fell into the sea, which has since been called the Icarus Sea. This fall is reminiscent of the falls of Phaethon and especially of Bellerophon, who, like Icarus, was a winged hero.
