Преобразуйте, если это необходимо, слово «SEAMAN» так, чтобы оно грамматически соответствовало содержанию текста.
The legends of ancient Greece tell us about the half man-half bull called the Minotaur. People were afraid of this strange and terrible beast (LIVE) in a deep, dark Labyrinth on the island of Crete. The Labyrinth (DESIGN) by the cunning and ingenious mind of Daedalus. Daedalus was a brilliant architect and inventor – in fact, he was so brilliant that King Minos of Crete (NOT WANT) to let him go back to his home in Athens. Instead, he kept him as a prisoner. Daedalus lived with his son Icarus in a tower of the palace, and King Minos made him invent weapons of war that would make his army and navy even (POWERFUL) than they already were. Although Daedalus and Icarus had every comfort that they (CAN) ask for, the father longed to return home to Athens. Icarus hardly remembered his city, but he too wanted to leave, because he longed to run and play in the open, rather than be in a tower all day. Daedalus looked out over the waves of the sea, and he realised that even if they managed to slip out of the tower and find a little boat, they would not be able to sail far. One of King Minos’s (SEAMAN) would spot and catch them very soon.
