King Midas lives in the Land of Lydia and he finds a Satyr in his rose bush. The Satyr has run away from Dionysus and tells him if he lets him stay in his palace he won't tell Dionysus he ran away.
Dionysus gave King Midas one wish for bringing back his Satyr and King Midas wished to turn everything he touched into gold. He touched a cup and it turned to gold, he touched an apple and it turned ot gold.
He realized he could not eat or drink anything so he would die. He needed to go see Dionysus to see about reversing the wish or finding a way to change it.
On his way out to go see Diony
When he got to Dionysus, he told King Midas to go a river and swim in it for awhile and when you get out the wish will be reversed. He swam around then go out and noticed the water was sparkly and there were gold nuggets on the shore. He was sure the wish had been reversed.
When King Midas got his wish reversed it made him content. He realized he had everything he needed and didn't want anything more. He wasn't greedy anymore and did anything he could to help anyone.
