Greek mithology

Here you have the task that you have to do: pick one of the Δωδεκάθεον (Dodekatheon –> Olympian Greek god), and see the atributes (symbols), powers, and Roman equivalence.

Go to the British Musemum’s website about Ancient Greece (click on the image) for completing this task.

The gods of the Δωδεκάθεον were Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Hermes, Hestia, Dionysus, Hades and Persephone.

Please, do it nicely in your notebook, and I would suggest you to find an image of the god, write the name in Greek (Ζεύς is the ancient Greek for Zeus, for instance)… Make it nice 😉

*** Look for an image of the god or goddess in Madrid! You will find most of them at Museo del Prado.


As you may recall from Geometry, the prefix ‘dodeka/dodeca’ means 12, and here you see 15 gods… That is because it changed at some points, with Hades excluded many times because of living in the underworld, not at Mount Olympus.

And remember: answering the attributes, powers and Roman equivalent of the god of your choice will be half a grade (at least) in the test!
