 Zeus darting its lightning on Typhon. Side B from a Chalcidian black-figured hydria, ca. 550 BC.
Zeus darting its lightning on Typhon. Side B from a Chalcidian black-figured hydria, ca. 550 BC.
Typhon was the last child of Gaia. After the defeat of his brothers Gigantes, Gaia urged him to avenge them, as well as his other brothers, the Titans.

Typhon started destroying cities and hurling mountains in a fit of rage. In the panic fear of Typhon, the gods fled to Egypt, where, in order to hide, they turned into a variety of animals: Zeus into the ram (leader), Hera into the cow, Aphrodite into a fish, Hephaestus into the ox, Heracles into a bird ibis. Only Athena stood on Mount Olympus, and she began a rebuke of Zeus because of cowardice, untill he again took his real face. Others say...

 Solar Apollo with Helio's halo
Solar Apollo with Helio's halo
“Helios” is just the Greek word for sun. He was also worshipped as a god द्वारा the Greek, especially in Rhodes. He is connected with घोड़े and chariots and sometimes with cattle. He is usually called the son of the Titans Hyperion and Theia या Euryphaesssa. Prominent children ascribed to him are Phaeton, King Aeetes of Colchis, and Circe.

“Apollo” (when we first see him in Homer and other early sources) is a god of archery, hunting, prophecy, lyre-music, and dancing. He is also god of cattle-herding and plague. He is never connected with the sun. And this stays almost entirely true in...

 Medusa,
Medusa,
In Greek mythology Medusa (Greek: Μέδουσα (Médousa), "guardian, protectress")[1] was a Gorgon, a chthonic monster, and a daughter of Phorcys and Ceto.[2] The लेखक Hyginus, (Fabulae, 151) interposes a generation and gives Medusa another chthonic pair as parents.[3] Gazing directly upon her would turn onlookers to stone. She was beheaded द्वारा the hero Perseus, who thereafter used her head as a weapon[4] until he gave it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion.The three...

What if there was a goddess that no one knew about? What if she was और powerfull than Zeus but और humble than Heistia? What if she was the human spirit of the sun, goddess of impulsivness, of energy, of decisions, of motivation?

Why are there all these what if's?


The goddess in question, called Anthoria, was the oldest child of Cronus and Rhea. She is कहा to be born from not her mothers womb, but from golden sunlight that fell on her mother in labor. She gave the gods the drive and fuel to keep fighting when they needed it, and took it away from her father when he had to much. She kept...

This is just a little story i wrote for English class last साल and i thought i should post it. Tell me what आप think!
~Sapphire


Persephone, goddess of spring and flowers, tediously packed up her things and trudged miserably down to the underworld. Her visit to Hades made her mother Demeter, the goddess of harvest, so sad that the air would turn bitter, frost would bite the plants and crops, and the leaves would shrivel up and turn an ugly brown before falling to the ground. One crisp fall day, not long after Persephone’s first visit to the underworld, Demeter was helping harvest the crops...

 Greek Gods & Goddesses
Greek Gods & Goddesses
Hi guys, since my brother have all of the myths पुस्तकें covering from Norse to Celtic. I would like to write down my favourite Greek myth and the reason why.

1) Hercules (Heracles)

Since watching the डिज़्नी version, I was really appalled द्वारा the original Greek mythology story. His original Greek name was Heracles while Hercules is his Roman name, in the Greek myth, Hera his stepmother was the main antagonist and he was force to do the 12 labours after he killed his wife and children द्वारा accident.

2) Perseus and Medusa

I felt bad Perseus and his mother, ironically he was Heracles' great-grandfather....

Artemis was born long पूर्व in the time of ancient greece. Her mother was the mortal leto and her father the great king of the gods zues. When Artemis and her twin apollo were to be born Hera gave an order to all the lands not to let her rest so she could give birth. But leto found an island that was not completley land and Artemis and apollo were born.
आप may wonder why she is called the eternal maiden for when artemis was young she asked her father to promise to never make her marry and atemis was named the eternal maiden, the goddess of newborn animals, the hunt and all maidens.
But artemis was not a forgiving goddess. take for example a young hunter. he saw artemis bathing and was turned into a हिरण, हरिण and killed द्वारा his own dogs. The 14 children of a woman because she boasted about her self over leto. Apollo killed her seven sons and artemis killed her seven daughters.
Artemis was an amazing goddess and is stilled portrayed in many texts today as the eternal maiden.

zeus is the King of the Gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus and the god of the sky and thunder in Greek mythology. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak. In addition to his Indo-European inheritance, the classical "cloud-gatherer" also derives certain iconographic traits from the cultures of the Ancient Near East, such as the scepter. Zeus is frequently depicted द्वारा Greek artists in one of two poses: standing, striding forward, with a thunderbolt leveled in his raised right hand, या seated in majesty.

Zeus was the child of Cronus and Rhea, and the youngest of his siblings. In most...

Bust of Hades. Marble, Roman copy after a Greek original from the 5th century BCE; the black mantle is a modern addition.
In Greek mythology, Hades (the "unseen"), the god of the underworld, was a son of the Titans, Cronus and Rhea. He had three sisters, Demeter, Hestia, and Hera, as well as two brothers, Zeus, the youngest of the three, and Poseidon, collectively comprising the original six Olympian gods. Upon reaching adulthood, Zeus managed to force his father to disgorge his siblings. After their release the six younger gods, along with allies they managed to gather, challenged the elder gods for power in the Titanomachy, a divine war. Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades received weapons from the three Cyclopes to help...

Taken from A Pride of Princesses, द्वारा Shirley Climo.


Once upon a time, so the mythmakers said, there lived a Greek king who had three daughters. The oldest princess was very pretty. The सेकंड princess was quite charming. The youngest princess, whose name was Psyche, was so lovely that even the फूल turned their heads to look at her.

Praise for Psyche's beauty spread throughout Greece and soon reached the ears of the gods and goddesses who dwelled high on Mount Olympus.
"Ridiculous!" scoffed the goddess Aphrodite. "This princess is only a girl. I am the Goddess of Beauty."

Aphrodite pushed aside...

हे there people!



Made this rhyme, not too long ago. On what could be the possible reason on how Olympus fell.

I was wondering, for the ones who read it and have greater knowledge than me on "Greek Myhtology". If they could let me know, in order to adjust the indescrepencies.

Second, let me know what आप think of it! And take part in taking this to a philosophical level.


Thanks for taking the time and have fun reading!


Olympus has Fallen.



As the titans forged the world.
A nova of light, hurled.
Like a hammer on anvil striking
Sea and Sand, dividing.

Onward the first dawn of light,
A terrace arose to...

Taken from The Greek Gods, द्वारा Evslin, Evslin, & Hoopes.





Aphrodite was the goddess of प्यार and beauty; so there are और stories told about her than anyone else, god या mortal....But all the tales agree that she is the goddess of desire, and, unlike other Olympians, is never distracted from her duties. Her work is her pleasure, her profession, her hobby. She thinks of nothing but love, and nobody expects और of her.


She was born....From the foam rose a tall beautiful maiden, naked and dripping. Waves attended her. Poseidon's white घोड़े brought her to the island of Cythera. Wherever...

She was also the mother of the Moirae, the three fates who were fathered द्वारा Zeus.

According to the ancient Greek traveller Pausanias, there was a temple...

No one celebrated the birth of Hephaestus. His mother, Hera, had awaited him with great eagerness, hoping for a child so beautiful, so gifted, that it would make Zeus forget his heroic swarm of children from lesser consorts. But when the baby was born she was appalled to see that he was shriveled and ugly, with an irritating bleating wail. She did not wait for Zeus to see him, but snatched the infant up and hurled him off Olympus.

For a night and a दिन he fell, and hit the ground at the edge of the sea with such force that both of his...

My name is Calypso
And I have lived alone
I live on an island
And I waken to the dawn
A long time ago
I watched him struggle with the sea
I knew that he was drowning
And I brought him into me
Now today
Come morning light
He sails away
After one last night
I let him go.

My names is Calypso
My garden overflows
Thick and wild and hidden
Is the sweetness there that grows
My hair it blows long
As I sing into the wind
I tell of nights
Where I could taste the salt on his skin
Salt of the waves
And of tears
And though he pulled away
I kept him here for years
I let him go.

My name is Calypso
I have let him go
In the dawn he sails away
To be gone forever more
And the waves will take him in again
But he'll know their ways now
I will stand upon the shore
With a clean heart
And my song in the wind
The sand will sting my feet
And the sky will burn
It's a lonely time ahead
I do not ask him to return
I let him go
I let him go.

- Suzanne Vega
