Cape Sounion Experience
According to legend Aegeus, the King of Athens, was waiting on his son Theseus to return from killing the Minotaur in Crete. Theseus, by mistake, forgot to change his sail from black to white; upon seeing the black sail and thinking his son Theseus was dead Aegeus jumped to his death from the cliffs into the sea below, thus giving the Aegean Sea its name.
The earliest mention to Sounion is in Homer's epic poem, "The Odyssey" (8th cen. BCE), when the temple at Sounion was dedicated to the god of the sea, Poseidon who was ultimately the cause of Odysseus's suffering.
