A woman takes a large land animal as a lover. Her husband, brother, or (adopted) children kill or maim her lover and (sometimes) the woman herself. Sometimes it's about a group of women and their husbands. (Unlike the K102 motif, Demon's Mistress, a lover is not dangerous to the hero and plays a purely passive role, and a woman, if she becomes hostile and dangerous, only after the death of her lover. Unlike the K76 motif, a woman and her husband/lover of an inhuman nature are clearly assessed negatively).

The Balkans. Ancient Greece: {the ancient Greek version does not fully meet the definition of motive; but is getting closer to the Indo-Pacific than any other in Western Eurasia} Bacchyl. Dith. 26 [papyrus passage of Bacchilides' praises (c. 518 - c. 451 BC): "... Pasiphaia.../... sowed Cyprides.../... desire... /Son of Eupalam, /To the most skillful between builders, /Daedalus, she discovered /Passion; taking a sacred oath,/[Wooden] ordered to build a [heifer],/[To] unite with the bull [by force] /Secretly from her husband, /Minos, the bow strainer, /Governor of Knossos; /And he, having learned it, /Conceived thought:/[Watching] spouses..." (trans. M.L. Gasparova)]; Palaept. II [About the Unbelievable" by Palephate (probably 4th century BC): "Pasiphae is told that she fell in love with a grazing bull, and Daedalus made a wooden cow, locked Pasiphaya in it, and thus a bull After covering her, he joined a woman; she became pregnant, and a child was born with a human body but with a bull's head. I'm saying this could not have happened. First of all, it is impossible for one living being to fall in love with another, even though their male and female organs do not fit together. It is impossible for a dog or a monkey, or a wolf, or a hyena to connect with each other, or a gazelle with a deer (even these are different breeds), nor to unite and produce offspring. It seems even less likely to me that a bull will meet a wooden cow. After all, every four-legged person sniffs the other's reproductive organs before mating and, thus, covers it. Then, a woman would not stand it if a bull climbed her and could not carry an embryo with horns" (trans. V.N. Yarkho)]; Diod. Sic. IV. 13. 4; 77. 1-5 [The Historical Library by Diodorus of Sicily (1st century BC): "Hercules then received an order to deliver from Crete the bull with whom Pasiphaus was in love. Arriving on the island and enlisting the support of King Minos, Hercules brought the bull to the Peloponnese, riding it over a vast expanse of sea"; "After that, Daedalus fled to Crete, thanks to his his artistic fame was greeted there with enthusiasm and became a friend of King Minos. According to myth, Minos' wife Pasiphaya fell in love with a bull, and then Daedalus built a device in the form of a cow with which Pasiphaya was able to satisfy her desire. The myth says that even earlier, Minos used to sacrifice the most beautiful bull to Poseidon every year. When he met a bull of extraordinary beauty, Minos sacrificed another, less perfect bull, and then Poseidon, angry at Minos, inspired his wife Pasiphaya to have a passion for [this] bull. With the help of the skillful device mentioned above, Pasiphaia combined with a bull and gave birth to the fabulous Minotaur, who is said to have a dual nature: his upper body is shoulder-length was bullish, and the lower one was human. To keep this monster, Daedalus built a labyrinth with winding passages, from which it was impossible for the uninitiated to get out. The Minotaur was kept there, devouring seven young men and [seven] girls sent to him from Athens, as mentioned above. After learning about Minos' threats caused by the construction of a cow statue and fearing royal anger, Daedalus sailed from Crete with the assistance of Pasiphaia, who provided him with a ship to escape" (trans. O.P. Tsybenko)]; Verg. Aen. VI. 24-26 [Virgil's Aeneid (1st century BC): "The lands of Knossos rise from waves to another: /Here is Pasiphai, attracted to a bull by cruel passion, /The trick is shameful; here is a monstrous memory of love,/ Its fruit is biform, the Minotaur, the birth of the queen" (trans. C. Osherova)]; Ovid. Met. VIII. 136-137 [Ovid's Metamorphoses (Er Er): Skilla, addressing Minos: "No wonder Pasiphay/Ox husband chose you: you were more ferocious" (trans. C. Shervinsky)]; Apollod. Bibl. III. 1. 4; 15. 9 [The Mythological Library of Pseudo-Apollodorus (I-II centuries): "Poseidon, angry that Minos did not sacrifice that {beautiful} bull to him, turned ferocity on the bull and inspired a love passion for this animal, Minos Pasiphae's wife. Falling in love with this bull, she took as her assistant the builder Daedalus, who was expelled from Athens after the murder there. Daedalus made a wooden cow on wheels, hollowed it out from the inside and covered his product with freshly torn cow skin. After putting it in the meadow where a bull used to graze, he let him enter this wooden Pasifae cow. The bull that appeared met her like a real cow, and Pasiphae gave birth to Asteria, nicknamed the Minotaur. He had a bull's head, but the rest of his body was human. Minos put him in a labyrinth, according to the oracles he had received, and ordered him to be guarded there. This labyrinth, which Daedalus built, was a building with intricate passages that made it difficult to get out of it"; "When Pasiphaia fell in love with the Poseidon Bull, Daedalus made a wooden one for her a cow; he also built a labyrinth where the Athenians brought seven young men and the same number of girls to be eaten by the Minotaur every year" (trans. V.G. Borukhovich)]; Hyg. Fab. 30, 40 [Myths attributed to Guy Julius Gigin, who lived at the turn of the eras, but most likely date back to the 1st and 2nd centuries: Hercules "[b] yka, with whom Pasiphaia reclined, brought alive from Crete to Mycenae";" Pasiphaia, daughter of the Sun and wife of Minos, did not perform priests to the goddess Venus for several years. For this, Venus gave her unholy love. She fell in love with a bull and <не подпускала к нему коров, чтобы> the other one didn't love someone she loved herself. When the expelled Daedalus arrived, she asked him to help her. He made her a wooden cow covered in the skin of a real cow, and she met a bull in it. When she became pregnant with him, she gave birth to a Minotaur, who had a bull's head and a human lower body. Then Daedalus made a labyrinth for the Minotaur, from which it was impossible to find a way out, and the Minotaur was imprisoned there. Minos, after learning about everything, took Daedalus into custody, and Pasiphaya released him from his shackles. Then Daedalus made wings for himself and his son Icarus, attached them and they flew away from there. Icarus flew too high, the wax melted from the sun, and fell into the sea, which was why it became known as the Ikarian Sea. Daedalus flew to King Cocal on the island of Sicily. Others say that when Theseus killed the Minotaur, he brought Daedalus back to his homeland in Athens" (trans. D.O. Torshilova)]; I Myth. Vat. I. 43. 1-3, III. 1. 73 ["The First Vatican Mythograph" (compiled at the turn of the I-II millennium by an unknown medieval compiler): "Having learned from the Sun about the betrayal of Venus with Mars, Vulcan surrounded their bed with the smallest with a network. Unaware, Mars and Venus were entangled by it and freed in great disgrace before the eyes of all gods. Worried through this incident, Venus began to pursue the entire family of the Sun with unprecedented love desires. So, Pasiphaia, daughter of the Sun, wife of King Minos of Crete, fell in love with the bull and came together with him, enclosed by Daedalus art inside a wooden cow covered in the skin of a beautiful heifer. From this, the Minotaur was born; enclosed in a labyrinth, he ate human meat"; "Pasiphaia from Taurus gave birth to the Minotaur" (trans. V.N. Yarkho)].
