* The central idea of the Minoan religion is the worshipping of a female deity, mother and source of life, the image of which is revealed to us by the Mino-an pictorial representations, sometimes with two aggressive animals by her sides, and others holding two snakes with her arms raised. A Potnia wom-an, almighty, the partner of whom was dedicated exclusively to the satisfac-tion of her erotic needs. She is the great mother of the Mediterranean.
