In Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a human body and the head and tail of a bull. Apart from this descriptive name, the name of the Minotaur was Asterios. Sometimes it is even represented as a bull with a human torso, in correspondence with the Centaur. He lived in the Labyrinth, a building built by Daedalus on the orders of the king of Crete, Minos. The Minotaur was killed by Theseus.
