Sine Loco: Farewell to Ariadne

Nobody knows for sure how Ariadne went on to spend the rest of her life. There are a few opposing versions. One, known as 'Ariadne in Mourning', has her spending the rest of her life in a monastery where she waits for some news from Theseus, but never receives any. Another, known as 'Ariadne Finds True Happiness', has her becoming a wife of Dionisis. And in the final account, entitled 'Ariadne the Dammed', she is unable to comprehend the death of the Minotaur and the flight of Theseus, and ends up by killing herself.
