Language:
English
Genres:

One day a stranger came to Admetus who was a king in Thessaly. He asked the king to serve in his palace. No one knew his name, but he looked very comely and the king made him chief of the royal flocks. Every day he strolled with his sheep on the bank of the river and he knew how to cure the ills of any wayfarer with any weed that grew near the king’s palace. Admetus rapidly understood that the guest what was a chief of the royal flocks wasn’t any earthly shepherd. From that day, like a true king, he treated his guest with reverence and friendliness, asking no questions; and his guest was well pleased… Who was that stranger? Read the story till the end to know what happened next!
