1.There were Roman gods of cattle, baking bread, fruit trees, even brooms!

That is... Horrible !

2. The first mortal that Zeus loved died by burning because he was on his Immortal form when he visited her.

3. Artemis sent a wild boar to kill Adonis after he continued to boast that he was a far greater hunter than her.

#1

Anubis, the god of death, was depicted with the head of a jackal. It’s believed that jackals became associated with death because they kept trying to dig up bodies from graveyards and eat them.

pfft.. haha..

5.

Hades never chose the underworld as his domain. He and his brothers, Zeus and Poseidon, drew straws to see who would rule what realm. Zeus drew the heavens and the upper world, Poseidon drew the seas, and Hades drew the underworld.

6. Hera restored her virginity each year: Hera was the sister of Zeus who later became his wife as she was very much in love with him. She got a love charm from Aphrodite to make Zeus fall in love with him. But the most interesting thing about her is that she restored her virginity each year by bathing in a sacred spring called Kanathos.

7. Atlas was punished to hold the heavens not the Earth: Atlas was a Titan who fought and led a battle of Titans against Zeus but got defeated and was punished by Zeus to hold up heavens on his shoulders for all eternity. For a while he got Hercules to hold it up for him but then later resumed his duties when Hercules cheated him into holding the weight of the heavens again. He is wrongly portrayed to be holding up the earth.

8. All of the planets, except for Earth, were named after Greek and Roman gods and godesses. Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus and Mercury were given their names thousands of years ago.The tradition of naming the planets after Greek and Roman gods and goddesses was carried on for the other planets discovered as well.

9. Many consumer products get their names from Greek mythology.

Percy

Ancient Egyptians believed that people were made out of clay on a potter’s wheel by the river god, Khnum.
