Minos, according to Plato (Minos and Laws), Thucydides A 3 - 10), Homer (Iliad and Odyssey), Diodorus and others, was the organizer of the state and the founder of the maritime force of Cretans. Simply put, Minos was not only was Greek, but was the first Greek ("This first of the Greeks) who first introduced laws - why, indeed, the Greeks called the great Greek legislator and posthumously proclaimed arbiter Hades of the Greeks - and other established navies (and thus is the founder of Greek Navy) and I was expelled from the Cyclades and the Greek seas (Aegean Archipelago and the Mediterranean Sea) and the bandits pirates, Cares and Phoenicians, freed the sea lanes from the thugs, etc. consistently made himself maritime force and corridors to be released so the Greeks can communicate, collaborate, engage in naval operations, to enrich, to prevail, to stop the migration life (ie a permanent and safe home - home, etc.) who oblige the offenders "Kares and Phoenicians.
