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.

 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 由 the Greek, especially in Rhodes. He is connected with 马 and chariots and sometimes with cattle. He is usually called the son of the Titans Hyperion and Theia 或者 Euryphaesssa. Prominent children ascribed to him are Phaeton, King Aeetes of Colchis, and Circe.

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 作者 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 由 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.

What if there was a goddess that no one knew about? What if she was 更多 powerfull than Zeus but 更多 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 说 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 年 and i thought i should post it. Tell me what 你 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...
