The story of Orkos begins in Ancient Greece, when Themison a merchant of the ancient Thira, was the instrument appointed by Etearchus, a Cretan King, to cast his daughter Phronime into the sea. Themison, going against an unholy deed, discharged his orkos, paying tribute to justice and love, secretly rescues Phronime, and carries her with his ship to safety in Thera. In contemporary Greece Orkos also echoes the exchange of vows of eternal love.
