Strangely, some Greek myths seemed to be repeated throughout time and space. The Minyans' quest echoed that of Jason and the Argonauts. (TV: Underworld) The story of Theseus and the Minotaur had similarities to the Anethans and the Nimon. (TV: The Horns of Nimon) When Miracle Day occurred in 2011, it seemed as if the story of Tithonus would be made a reality for the whole world. (TV: Rendition)
