In Greek mythology, the Minotaur has the body of a man and the head of a bull, as he is the product of his mother Pasiphae's obsession with the Cretan bull. Their offspring was a punishment sent by Poseidon against Pasiphae's husband, Minos, King of Crete, who was supposed to sacrifice the bull but chose to keep it for himself.

Dactyl are short phallic male creatures in Greek myth. They are associated with the Great Mother Rhea, and are said to have invented the art of shaping metals with fire.
