Once, Poseidon, the god of the Seas, fell in love with Astypalaia, the sister of Europe, and abducted her. The couple gave birth to a son and named him Agaeus, who later on would participate in the Argonautic expedition.
Agaeus lived on the island of Samos and was an excellent winegrower. But undoubtedly, he was very harsh on his workers and treated them like slaves.
One day, a servant became furious about the way Agaeus treated him: "Never should you drink wine from your vineyard!", he cursed his master.
Time passed by, until one fine day the wine was prepared and ready to drink. Happily, Agaeus called his servant and told him: "See how ridiculous you were! Your curse was in vain!"
Calmly, the servant replied: "There is a long distance between this glass and your lips..."
Right at that moment, a slave informed Agaeus about a wild boar that destroyed his country. Hastily, Agaeus left his glass and rushed against the beast. Ultimately, the boar devoured Agaeus and the prophecy was verified.This myth was dedicated to the people who quickly jump to conclusions.
