    The Oresteia - the mythical origin of a justice system, wherein grievances and crimes are adjudicated in a court of law.

    Who put the glad in gladiator?
    Hercules!
    Hercules!


    Love that song.... 'Zero to Hero'
    And that movie...
    And that TV show! (OMG, that was the best).
    (Had Icarus who flew too close to the sun, and his father Daedalus).


    The story of Hercules was pretty good, from what I know - he went to the afterlife and all of that.

    I'm not so well versed in Greek mythology (I prefer Norse) but...

    I like that there are several "generations" of gods (Primordials, Titans, and Olympians) and the bloody succession stories.

    I also like the monsters. Charybdis, Scylla, Cerberos, Hydra, Medusa, and so on. I could stand to better acquaint myself with all this stuff.

    I like Penelope's tricking of the suitors in The Odyssey.
