You have time to walk at leisure on the rocky promontory of Sounio. According to legend, Cape Sounio is the spot where Aegeus, king of Athens, leapt to his death off the cliff, thus giving his name to the Aegean Sea.  The myth says that King Aegeus, anxiously looking out from Cape Sounio, despaired when he saw a black sail on his son Theseus's ship, returning from Crete. This led him to believe that his son had been killed in his contest with the dreaded Minotaur, a monster that was half man and half bull.
