 Zeus darting its lightning on Typhon. Side B from a Chalcidian black-figured hydria, ca. 550 BC.
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. Only Athena stood on Mount Olympus, and she began a rebuke of Zeus because of cowardice, untill he again took his real face. Others say...

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

“Apollo” (when we first see him in Homer and other early sources) is a god of archery, hunting, prophecy, lyre-music, and dancing. He is also god of cattle-herding and plague. He is never connected with the sun. And this stays almost entirely true in...

My name is Calypso
And I have lived alone
I live on an island
And I waken to the dawn
A long time ago
I watched him struggle with the sea
I knew that he was drowning
And I brought him into me
Now today
Come morning light
He sails away
After one last night
I let him go.

My names is Calypso
My garden overflows
Thick and wild and hidden
Is the sweetness there that grows
My hair it blows long
As I sing into the wind
I tell of nights
Where I could taste the salt on his skin
Salt of the waves
And of tears
And though he pulled away
I kept him here for years
I let him go.

My name is Calypso
I have let him go
In the dawn he sails away
To be gone forever more
And the waves will take him in again
But he'll know their ways now
I will stand upon the shore
With a clean heart
And my song in the wind
The sand will sting my feet
And the sky will burn
It's a lonely time ahead
I do not ask him to return
I let him go
I let him go.

In Greek mythology, Ananke au Anagke (Ancient Greek: Ἀνάγκη, from the common noun ἀνάγκη, force, constraint, necessity), was the personification of destiny, necessity and fate, depicted as holding a spindle. She marks the beginning of the cosmos, along with Chronos. She was seen as the most powerful dictator of all fate and circumstance which meant that the other Gods had to give her respect and pay homage as well as the mortals. She was also the mother of the Moirae, the three fates who were fathered kwa Zeus.

According to the ancient Greek traveller Pausanias, there was a temple...
