This is another composition on the theme of the Minoan Labyrinth, in which Theseus's escapes by boat after he accomplishes his mission.
According to the most popular version of the myth, Theseus was Neptune's son and not a child of King Aigaias. In this version, the Labyrinth intervenes between father and son and symbolizes, among other things, their personal relationship (as between Daedalus and Icarus as well): the son must find his own calling by leaving the environment created by his father, in order to emancipate himself and to become a self-contained and independent entity.
The difference between Icarus and Theseus lies in the fact that the first died as a mortal who challenged the gods (his attempt to fly was considered hubris because it went beyond measure) while the latter, favored by the gods, overcame all difficulties and, due to his heroic labors, was recognized as half god.
