    The spirits of the old gods are still here...

    by Aggeliki Updated Jun 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Greek Gods made their home on Olympus, the highest mountain in the country and also the oldest and most carefully protected national park with a great forest, and the crystal clear waters of the Enippeas river.
    The deities living on top of Mount Olympus:
    Aphrodite - Goddess of love, romance, and beauty. Her son was Eros, god of Love (though he is not an Olympian)
    Apollo - Beautiful god of the sun, light, medicine, and music.
    Ares - Dark god of war who loves Aphrodite.
    Artemis - Independent goddess of the hunt, the forest, wildlife, childbirth, and the moon. Sister to Apollo.
    Athena - Daughter of Zeus and goddess of wisdom, war, and crafts. Sometimes spelled "Athene".
    Demeter - Goddess of agriculture and mother of Persephone (again, her offspring is not considered to be an Olympian).
    Hephaestus - Lame god of fire and the forge. Sometimes spelled Hephaistos. The Hephaestion near the Acropolis is the most beautifully preserved ancient temple in Greece. Mated to Aphrodite.
    Hera - Wife of Zeus, protector of marriage, familiar with magic.
    Hermes - The speedy messenger of the gods, god of business. The Romans called him Mercury.
    Hestia - Calm goddess of home and homelife, symbolized by the hearth which holds the continually-burning flame.
    Poseidon - God of the sea, horses, and of earthquakes.
    Zeus - Supreme lord of gods, god of the sky, symbolized by the thunderbolt.
    The spirits of the old gods and goddesses are still powerfully present here...
