Summary
This encyclopedia presents the mythology of ancient Greek and Rome. It examines the best-known figures of Greek and Roman mythology together with the great works of classic literature that are the sources for our understanding of mythology. This work also features numerous illustrations from both ancient and modern works of fine art to show how myths have been transmitted in visual form through the ages. Entries include Greek and Roman gods and heroes, such as Athena, Achilles, Apollo, Heracles, Odysseus, Orpheus, Poseidon, and Zeus; mythological creatures, such as Cerberus, the Gorgons, the Minotaur, and Pegasus; and great works of literature that provide the sources for classical mythology, including the plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides; the Aeneid of Virgil; the Iliad and the Odyssey of Homer; and the Metamorphoses of Ovid
