Get to know the ancient Greek gods and goddesses…and find out why their stories are still so enthralling today.

Discover how to identify each god, demigod, hero or monster from the ancient Greek world through their attributes and symbols, learn about their most famous stories from ancient sources and myths, and find out how these characters were viewed and worshipped in classical times.

From Aphrodite to Dionysus, Helen of Troy to the Minotaur, bestselling author and classicist Caroline Lawrence brings together all the information you need to really get to know the gods and goddesses. Classical sources such as the Homeric epics, ancient art and archaeological finds inform each god’s profile, while facts about mythical figures in contemporary culture show how these gods and their stories have stood the test of time. Classical illustrator Flora Kirk’s stunning, colourful artworks accompany each profile, making this a beautiful, must-have companion guide to the myths.
