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

Taken from A Pride of Princesses, 의해 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 초 princess was quite charming. The youngest princess, whose name was Psyche, was so lovely that even the 꽃 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...

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





Aphrodite was the goddess of 사랑 and beauty; so there are 더 많이 stories told about her than anyone else, god 또는 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 더 많이 of her.


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

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...
