    • The title of this episode alludes to the legendary King Midas of Phrygia. The god Dionisus granted Midas one wish, and he chose the power that everything he touched would turn to gold. Unhappily, this proved to include Midas's food and his infant daughter, Bernike. So Dionisus allowed Midas to wash his golden touch away in the waters of the River Pactolus - and to this day, gold dust can be panned in the river.
