Some may specially enjoy the idea of the king's 50 daughters in fifty nights. :wink:

Actually it seems from this link you can reach all the heros and antiheros of Greek mythology, by clicking the links which go from each blue colored name

By now I have noticed that this is a very rich link. Specially at the end there ist a lot of knowledge about ancient Greece.

Andy, the link may be too rich. Sometimes, if there is too much information, one can't decide where to look first and may become confused
If you prefer simply the myths, without too many additional links inside, I could try to find some.

Thanks for the link, Ruven - I think it's brilliant! I am sure you will agree that even the raunchiest TV soaps are insipid when compred to the "goings on" in Ancient Greece e.g.

Cronus (Saturn) became the chief god of the universe when he castrated his father (Uranus) with a sickle. He created mankind and all was well for a while. However, to prevent his mother's prediction that he would also be overthrown by his own sons, he swallowed each of his children as soon as they were born. Sadly for Cronus, his wife Rhea (she was also his sister, and is sometimes called Pandora)tricked him into swallowing a stone instead of his last son (Zeus). Zeus was sent to Crete until he grew up. At this point Rhea gave Cronus an emetic, and he vomited all the sons he had swallowed years before!

Eventually Cronus and the Titans (sounds like a pop group) were defeated by the younger gods (Zeus and the Olympians), and Zeus became supreme leader of the universe.

Zeus was a poor role model for mankind. He raped both his mother and his daughter, and he had numerous affairs with goddesses, nymphs and mortal women. He is also known to have surprised the odd swan on occasion! Now I know he isn't our sort of god, but I suppose we should make allowances. After all, he came from a dysfunctional family and he had a difficult childhood.

Thanks again Ruven :)

Oh yes, those ancients had dramas, murder plots, scandals, affairs all of the highest level. Even the bible is not such a saintly book full of praising the Lord. It contains every kind of sex, murders, plots, crime and all the stuff they imitate on TV today . :wink:

Nike was a Greek goddess whose name means victory. She didn't wear trainers, but her wings undoubtedly made her a formidable opponent, especially when working with her siblings Cratos (strength), Bia (force) and Zelus (rivalry).

Names stemming from Nike include Nicholas and Nils.

In Greek mythology, Io was a nymph who was seduced by Zeus. His wife (Hera) was annoyed, so Zeus changed Io into a white cow to disguise her. Eventually, Hera forced the cow to roam the world without rest, and sent a gadfly to sting her repeatedly. The cow was encouraged by a conversation with Prometheus (while he was being cruelly punished by Zeus for giving fire to mankind), and escaped to Egypt. Zeus then changed Io back into a woman, and she gave birth to a son and a daughter by him.

It is now exactly 400 years since Galileo discovered four of the moons of Jupiter (it has 63 moons altogether). One of these moons (Io) is the most volcanic place in the solar system. Its solid surface is yellow due to its high sulphur content, but it also has huge lava lakes, giant volcanoes (up to 16 km high) and volcanic geysers spewing sulphurous plumes 500 km above its surface.

It might be your vision of Hell, but scientists have been fascinated by Io since its discovery in 1610, and the Seven Dwarfs from Snow White used to sing about it:-

"Io, Io its off to work we go!"
