He left Egypt and settled in Canaan, where he married Telefasa and from this union were born Cadmus, Fénix, Cilix, Thasos, Fineo and Europa.

Then of the rape of Europe and under the guise of a white bull by Zeus, Agenor sent his sons to look for her with the order not to return if they did not find her.
