suas vias dabant
Typo: vias = vitas (‘gave their lives’ - not their roads)

Ariadnae, suae amicae
of Adriadne, his friend

of Adriadne, his girlfriend

Septem pueros et eundem numerum puellarum ad eum mittebant: They (the citizens) sent boys and the same number, etc.; not 'they were sent.'

Typo: Minotarum should be Minotaurum

Nunc navem ipsam sui filii videre poterat: now he was able (imperfect), not 'now he had been able' (pluperfect would be potuerat).

vela sunt: the sails are, not 'were' (though 'are' is indeed more idiomatic in English).

You missed sine mora.
