The Kiss of Poison

And during his reign Theseus, sailing from Crete with Ariadne, was treated as a guest-friend by those living on the island. And seeing Dionysos in a dream threatening him if he did not leave Ariadne there, in fear he left her behind and sailed off, and Dionysos led Ariadne off at night to the mountain called Drios; and first the God disappeared, and after this Ariadne also disappeared. (Diodoros Sikeliotes, Library of History 5.51.4)

“It was always you, Helen.”
