you forgot some thing

hestia was also the goddess of the home.

Hi,
that's what I meant by "hearth", as the fire of the hearth was the central point of a home :-)

New myth

Have you heard the myth of Athena and her daughter? I'm pretty sure the myth is that Athena had her daughter stay with dadles ( i think ) and he got tired of her so he pushed her off a cliff so Athena cursed him. I think that is how it goes. I'm not sure if the god that she left her daughter is right either. Just seeing if anyone knew what myth I was talking about!!!


Hello there!
I searched and searched, but I could find no reference about Athena having a daughter in Greek mythology.
Who knows anything about this subject?
I have read that in the Percy Jackson series, the character Annabeth is Athena's daughter... but that's not Greek mythology :-)

myths

by person

i believe that there should not be the names of gods or goddesses on your page if their is no information on them

Thank you for your comment. From an analysis of the visitors of this site, most of them arrive here by looking for "list of greek gods and goddesses names", that's why I tried to make at least a *list* of their names. I admit I don't have too much time for updating the site, and I'm sorry about it, but your comments encourage to try to add things more often :-)

I only know myths a little bit

by Max
(Australia)

Hi, this is Max. I heard of some myths, like the myth of Narcissus looking at himself in a mirror and then sinking in the dirt and flowers appeared, or the lion with a thorn stuck in its foot. So, however, do you know any more myths?

Hi Max,
in short, Narcissus was very beautiful and very proud and would disdain those who fell in love with him. One day, when he wanted to drink water from a lake, he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with this image. He either stayed there until he starved and died, or else he tried to kiss his image, fell in the water and drowned. In the place where he died, the first "narcissus" flowers (i.e. the daffodil) appeared.
There is also the myth of the flood, cause by Zeus, who was angry with the people of the Bronze Age because they were violent. The only persons to be saved were Deucalion and Pyrrha. After the flood, they were told to throw "their mother's bones" over their shoulders. At first they were shocked by this, but in the end they understood "their mother" meant Gaea, the earth, and her "bones" meant stones. So they threw stones over their shoulders. From those threw by Deucalion, men appeared, and from Pyrrha's, women appeared. That's how the earth was repopulated after the flood.
