The goddess of love - Astarte, or Venus - is revered at Erice near the western coast of Sicily. It was there that Daedalus was tasked to make a golden honeycomb for the goddess. Honeycomb - and therefore bees - are inextricably linked with Sicily. So, Cassandra named this collection Melissae (meaning bee) Di Erice. From the journey to Sicily.
