 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...

zeus is the King of the Gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus and the god of the sky and thunder in Greek mythology. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak. In addition to his Indo-European inheritance, the classical "cloud-gatherer" also derives certain iconographic traits from the cultures of the Ancient Near East, such as the scepter. Zeus is frequently depicted kwa Greek artists in one of two poses: standing, striding forward, with a thunderbolt leveled in his raised right hand, au seated in majesty.

Zeus was the child of Cronus and Rhea, and the youngest of his siblings. In most...

 Medusa,
Medusa,
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 mwandishi 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 kwa 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. In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion.The three...

Taken from A Pride of Princesses, kwa Shirley Climo.

Praise for Psyche's beauty spread throughout Greece and soon reached the ears of the gods and goddesses who dwelled high on Mount Olympus.
"Ridiculous!" scoffed the goddess Aphrodite. "This princess is only a girl. I am the Goddess of Beauty."

Aphrodite pushed aside...

What if there was a goddess that no one knew about? What if she was zaidi powerfull than Zeus but zaidi 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 alisema to be born from not her mothers womb, but from golden sunlight that fell on her mother in labor.
