Greek Mythology: This article is a stub / placeholder and still has to be worked out!
- creation story (Gaea and Uranos, 12 Titans, one of which is Chronos who will turn on his father, and castrate him. Son of Chronos is Zeus who turns against his dad).
- battles between the gods;
- interaction with humans;
- stories of heroes: Ilias - Odyssey.
There is a very intimate link with Roman Mythology. Basically, the Romans just adopted the Greek Gods, and gave most of them a new name:
Zeus became Jupiter;
Hera became Juno (or Io);
Chronos became Saturnus (Saturn);
Ares became Mars;
Aphrodite became Venus;
Hermes became Mercurius [Mercury];
Poseidon became Neptunus [Neptune];
Athena became Minerva;
Artemis became Diana;
Hephaistos became Vulcanus [Vulcan];
Hades became Pluto
Hestia became Vesta;
Demeter became Ceres.
Apollo and Dionysus kept their names, as did Uranus.
