House of Daedalus

Labarintus id est domus Dealli. (Latin, ”The labyrinth, that is to say in other words, the house of Daedalus”.) The labyrinth on Crete depicted on the medieval map of the world at Hereford Cathedral, United Kingdom.

The House of Daedalus is another name for a labyrinth. The term was popular during the 14th and 15th centuries. Daedalus was the architect of the original labyrinth in Greek mythology. It not only housed the bull headed Minotaur, he and his son Icarus were imprisoned in it.
