The History of Honey

The history of honey begins from the ancient times. Back then it was a natural and healthy product, indispensable to the daily diet, and not a supplement.
Honey was the nectar of the Gods, one of the oldest and tastiest foods.

The Gods of Olympus would eat nectar and ambrosia. Hesiod and Pindar mention that Aristaeus, the son of Apollo, the god of music and harmony, and Cyrene, the daughter of Hypseus, King of the Lapiths was credited with beekeeping, the cultivation of grapes and olives. Aristaeus was also the patron of shepherds and hunters, of medicine and clairvoyance.

Aristaeus was born in Libya and Hermes took him to be raised by Gaia and the Horae and they dropped nectar and ambrosia on the infant’s lips, thus making him immortal. Later on, Aristaeus was taught clairvoyance and medicine by the Muses. The Nymphs taught him how to cultivate grapes and olives but they also taught him beekeeping, which he would become known for. Aristaeus first sailed to Ceos (Kea) where he taught beekeeping to the inhabitants of the island.
Thus, Aristaeus became, especially for the Ceans, the inventor of a series of useful arts, the most important of which was beekeeping. Aristaeus and the bee became the basic symbols of Kea and they were represented on the coins of Loulis, Karthaia and Korissia (ancient city-states of Kea).

There was organized beekeeping during those mythical times. There is no doubt about it according to the myth about Aristaeus and we find more proof as we proceed to the historic times.
