Distraught that he might starve to death, his daughter Zoe comes to comfort him, and hugs him. She is turned to lifeless gold as well. Desperate, Midas entreats Dionysus to take back the gift, and in a rare show of Olympian mercy, Dionysus shows Midas how to remove the power, by bathing himself in the River Pactolus, as well as anything transformed.
