The temple of Poseidon is one of the mainlands most beautiful ancient Greek structures. The temple was built by the ancient Greeks in honor of the god Poseidon, who is said to be the god of the sea. Near the Temple, there are freestanding statues of young men. The temple was built strategically by the ancient Greeks, at the very tip of the mainland and overlooking the sea. That's why this temple is so beautiful to visit, since you have a great view of the ocean and the horizon.

A small error, the view from the Temple of Poseidon in Attica is of the Aegean Sea. We Greek Americans that grew up on the Atlantic coast got used to saying the Ocean when in fact it is the sea, a small oversite.:)

I try to go here whenever I am in Greece! It's such a neat place to see. It overlooks the water and is just gorgeous at sunset.
 

Thoughts on Oedipus Rex?

recently finished reading Oedipus Rex by Sophocles, and I’m curious to hear what others think about this classic tragedy.

For those who haven't read it, the story revolves around Oedipus, the King of Thebes, who is determined to rid his city of a plague by discovering and punishing the murderer of the previous king, Laius. As he delves deeper into the investigation, he uncovers harrowing truths about his own identity and his inadvertent fulfillment of a prophecy that he would kill his father and marry his mother.

It was an interesting read, to say the least. What do you guys think of it?

Greek God or Goddess About Cooking?

I've recently been diving into mythology and am particularly fascinated by Greek mythology. I was wondering, are there any Greek gods or goddesses associated with cooking or cuisine?

I know the Greeks had gods and goddesses for various aspects of life, and I'm curious if the culinary arts were represented in any way. Thanks in advance!

Understanding the Goddess Hera's Jealousy

I've been delving into Greek mythology recently, and one aspect that continually piques my interest is the jealousy of Hera, the queen of the gods. Hera's jealousy, particularly towards Zeus's numerous affairs and their resulting offspring, is a recurring theme in many myths.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts and interpretations on this. Why do you think Hera's jealousy is so prominently featured in these stories? Is it meant to reflect certain human qualities or societal norms of the time? Or is there another symbolic reason behind it?

Additionally, how do you think Hera's jealousy shapes her interactions with other characters and the overall narrative of Greek myths? Does it add a layer of complexity to her character, or does it serve more as a plot device?

Myth of Pandora's Box?

I'm fascinated by the myth of Pandora’s Box and would love to learn more about its story. Could someone share details or insights into the mythological tale of Pandora’s Box? I'm curious about its origins, the significance of Pandora herself, and what the box symbolizes in Greek mythology. Are there variations of the story across different sources or cultures?

Additionally, if there are any recommended books, articles, or resources where I can explore this myth further, I'd greatly appreciate your suggestions. Understanding the deeper meanings and interpretations of Pandora’s Box intrigues me, and I'm eager to delve into its symbolism and impact on ancient Greek storytelling.
