Theseus: Birth and Early Adventures The Crommyon Sow

Advertisement - Guide continues below

The Crommyon Sow

A big mean pig, who is Theseus's third foe on the road to Athens. Some say that the sow's name was Phaea. Others say that the sow had a nasty hag of an owner named Phaea. Still others say that there never was a pig at all, but that Phaea was such a big nasty woman that everybody called her a pig. Whatever, either way Theseus chops the pig up for BBQ, and if she had an owner, he killed her too. Yay, for heroes.
