Lee LawrieCadmus After his sister Europa had been carried off by Zeus from the shores of PhoeniciaCadmus was sent out by his Project cadmus to find her, and enjoined not to return without her.
Unsuccessful in his search—or unwilling to go against Zeus—he came to Samothracethe island Project cadmus to the "Great Gods"  or the Kabeiroiwhose mysteries would be celebrated also at Thebes. Cadmus did not journey alone to Samothrace; he appeared with his mother Telephassa  in the company of his nephew or brother Thasusson of Cilixwho gave his name to the island of Thasos nearby.
An identically composed trio had other names at Samothrace, according to Diodorus Siculus: There was a fourth figure, Electra's daughter, Harmonia whom Cadmus took away as a bride, as Zeus had abducted Europa.
He was ordered to give up his quest and follow a special cow, with a half moon on her flank, which would meet him, and to build a town on the spot where she should lie down exhausted.
Intending to sacrifice the cow to AthenaCadmus sent some of his companions, Deioleon and Seriphus to the nearby Ismenian spring for water. Cadmus Sowing the Dragon's teeth, by Maxfield Parrish He was then instructed by Athena to sow the dragon's teeth in the ground, from which there sprang a race of fierce armed men, called the Spartoi "sown".
By throwing a stone among them, Cadmus caused them to fall upon one another until only five survived, who assisted him to build the Cadmeia or citadel of Thebes, and became the founders of the noblest families of that city. The dragon had been sacred to Aresso the god made Cadmus do penance for eight years by serving him.
According to Theban tellings, it was at the expiration of this period that the gods gave him Harmonia "harmony", literally "well put together", or "well assembled" as wife. At the wedding, whether celebrated at Samothrace or at Thebes, all the gods were present; Harmonia received as bridal gifts a peplos worked by Athena and a necklace made by Hephaestus.
This necklace, commonly referred to as the Necklace of Harmoniabrought misfortune to all who possessed it. Notwithstanding the divinely ordained nature of his marriage and his kingdom, Cadmus lived to regret both: Cadmus finally abdicated in favor of his grandson Pentheusand went with Harmonia to Illyriato fight on the side  of the Enchelii.
Immediately he began to grow scales and change in form. Harmonia, seeing the transformation, thereupon begged the gods to share her husband's fate, which they granted Hyginus.
In another telling of the story, the bodies of Cadmus and his wife were changed after their deaths; the serpents watched their tomb while their souls were translated to the fields. In Euripides ' The BacchaeCadmus is given a prophecy by Dionysus whereby both he and his wife will be turned into snakes for a period before eventually being brought to live among the blest.

The fact that Hermes was worshipped in Samothrace under the name of Cadmus or Cadmilus seems to show that the Theban Cadmus was interpreted as an ancestral Theban hero corresponding to the Samothracian.
Another Samothracian connection for Cadmus is offered via his wife Harmonia, who is said by Diodorus Siculus to be daughter of Zeus and Electra and of Samothracian birth.
