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...

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.

 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 por the Greek, especially in Rhodes. He is connected with cavalos and chariots and sometimes with cattle. He is usually called the son of the Titans Hyperion and Theia or 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...

Taken from A Pride of Princesses, por 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 segundo princess was quite charming. The youngest princess, whose name was Psyche, was so lovely that even the flores 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...

Iris is a minor Greek goddess. She is goddess of the arco iris, arco-íris and female messenger of the gods (the male messenger of the god is Hermes).

Iris has many jobs to carry out. She travels with the speed of light from one end of the world to the other and down into the depths of the sea (Poseidon's territory) and anjos da noite (Hades's territory). Iris links the gods to humanity. She waters the clouds with her pitcher. She also delivers to the gods the sacred water of the River Styx.

Iris is portrayed as a arco iris, arco-íris or a goddess with golden wings on her shoulders. She carries a winged staff or a caduceus...

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 por Greek artists in one of two poses: standing, striding forward, with a thunderbolt leveled in his raised right hand, or seated in majesty.

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