He touched an oak twig and a stone; both turned to gold. Overjoyed, as soon as he got home, he touched every rose in the rose garden, and all became gold.
He ordered the servants to set a feast on the table. Upon discovering how even the food and drink turned into gold in his hands, he regretted his wish and cursed it.
Claudian states in his In Rufinum : "So Midas, king of Lydia, swelled at first with pride when he found he could transform everything he touched to gold; but when he beheld his food grow rigid and his drink harden into golden ice then he understood that this gift was a bane and in his loathing for gold, cursed his prayer.
In a version told by Nathaniel Hawthorne in A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys , Midas' daughter came to him, upset about the roses that had lost their fragrance and become hard, and when he reached out to comfort her, found that when he touched his daughter, she turned to gold as well.
Now, Midas hated the gift he had coveted. He prayed to Dionysus, begging to be delivered from starvation. Dionysus heard his prayer, and consented; telling Midas to wash in the river Pactolus.
Then, whatever he put into the water would be reversed of the touch. Midas did so, and when he touched the waters, the power flowed into the river, and the river sands turned into gold.
This explained why the river Pactolus was so rich in gold and electrum , and the wealth of the dynasty of Alyattes of Lydia claiming Midas as its forefather no doubt the impetus for this origin myth.
Gold was perhaps not the only metallic source of Midas' riches: "King Midas, a Phrygian, son of Cybele , first discovered black and white lead".
Midas, now hating wealth and splendor, moved to the country and became a worshipper of Pan , the god of the fields and satyrs. Once, Pan had the audacity to compare his music with that of Apollo , and challenged Apollo to a trial of skill also see Marsyas.
Tmolus , the mountain-god, was chosen as umpire. Pan blew on his pipes and, with his rustic melody, gave great satisfaction to himself and his faithful follower, Midas, who happened to be present.
Then Apollo struck the strings of his lyre. Tmolus at once awarded the victory to Apollo, and all but one agreed with the judgment.
Midas dissented, and questioned the justice of the award. Apollo would not suffer such a depraved pair of ears any longer, and said "Must have ears of an ass!
Midas was mortified at this mishap. He attempted to hide his misfortune under an ample turban or headdress, but his barber of course knew the secret, so was told not to mention it.
However, the barber could not keep the secret. He went out into a meadow, dug a hole in the ground, whispered the story into it, then covered the hole up.
A thick bed of reeds later sprang up from the covered up hole, and began whispering the story, saying "King Midas has an ass's ears".
Sarah Morris demonstrated Morris, that donkeys' ears were a Bronze Age royal attribute, borne by King Tarkasnawa Greek Tarkondemos of Mira , on a seal inscribed in both Hittite cuneiform and Luwian hieroglyphs.
In this connection, the myth would appear for Greeks to justify the exotic attribute. The stories of the contests with Apollo of Pan and Marsyas were very often confused, so Titian 's Flaying of Marsyas includes a figure of Midas who may be a self-portrait , though his ears seem normal.
In pre-Islamic legend of Central Asia, the king of the Ossounes of the Yenisei basin had donkey's ears. He would hide them, and order each of his barbers murdered to hide his secret.
The last barber among his people was counselled to whisper the heavy secret into a well after sundown, but he didn't cover the well afterwards.
The well water rose and flooded the kingdom, creating the waters of Lake Issyk-Kul. According to an Irish legend, the king Labraid Loingsech had horse's ears, something he was concerned to keep quiet.
He had his hair cut once a year, and the barber, who was chosen by lot, was immediately put to death. A widow, hearing that her only son had been chosen to cut the king's hair, begged the king not to kill him, and he agreed, so long as the barber kept his secret.
The burden of the secret was so heavy that the barber fell ill. A druid advised him to go to a crossroads and tell his secret to the first tree he came to, and he would be relieved of his burden and be well again.
He told the secret to a large willow. Soon after this, however, a harper named Craiftine broke his instrument, and made a new one out of the very willow the barber had told his secret to.
Whenever he played it, the harp sang "Labraid Lorc has horse's ears". Labraid repented of all the barbers he had put to death and admitted his secret.
In Ireland, at Loch Ine, West Cork, there is a similar story told of the inhabitant of its island, who had ass's ears. Anyone engaged to cut this King's hair was then put to death.
But the reeds in the form of a musical flute spoke of them and the secret was out. The myth is also known in Brittany where the king Mark of Cornwall is believed to have ruled the south-western region of Cornouaille.
Chasing a white doe, he loses his best horse Morvarc'h Seahorse when the doe kills it with an arrow thrown by Mark.
Trying to kill the doe, he is cursed by Dahut , a magician who lives under the sea. She gives life to Morvarc'h back but switches his ears and mane with Mark's ears and hair.
Worried that the word might get out, Mark hides in his castle and kills every barber that comes to cut his hair until his milk brother Yeun is the last barber alive in Cornouaille.
He promises to let him live if Yeun keeps the secret and Yeun cuts his hairs with a magical pair of scissors.
The secret is too heavy for Yeun though and he goes to a beach to dig a hole and tell his secret in it.
When he leaves, three reeds appear. Years later, when Mark's sister marries, the musicians are unable to play for the reeds of their bagpipes and bombards have been stolen by korrigans.
