There once was a man with an extreme avarice named King Midas that was the ruler of Phrygia in the Asian Minor. King Midas wished that everything he touched turned to gold. It was to King Midas’ fortune that Dionyssus, god of wine and revelry, was on his way through Phrygia when his companion, Silenus, a satyr, decided to take a nap in Midas’ rose garden. Midas found Silenus and invited him to the castle to rest. He then took him back to Dionyssus. Dionyssus was grateful! He granted Midas any wish he wanted. Midas knew instantly what he wanted his wish to be. Without hesitation, he declared his wish, despite the warnings from Dionyssus. The king had wished that everything he touched turned to gold. The next day, Midas tested to see if his wish became true. He touched a table, and to his excitement, it turned to gold. He touched everything he could, and watched in amazement as everything turned to gold. When King Midas sat sown for breakfast, he found, to his dismay, that he could not eat, for everything he picked up turned to gold. When he started to panic, his beautiful daughter walked into the room. Midas was so upset, that he ran to her and tried to gain her sympathy. When he did, he touched her. His poor daughter turned into a statue of gold. This became too much for Midas. He began to cry and he prayed to Dionyssus. He prayed that the god would take away the horrible curse. Dionyssus heard the cries of King Midas and told him to go to the Pactolus river and wash his hands. He washed his hands in the river and was cured! After he arrived at back at home, he found that everything was back to normal. His daughter was cured and his food was now edible. Midas’ misfortune taught him a valuable lesson and he was grateful for all he had.
