Myth Cycles

Some of the Greek myths are told in the form of a series of stories featuring the same heroes.

Jason and the Argonauts

One of the older, and lesser-known cycles concerns Jason and his changing band of heroes, that at times included the likes of Herakles and the twins Castor and Polledeukes.


Recently adapted by Disney, in a version that seriously mangled the original story. Watched by myriad people in his TV series incarnation, Herakles must be one of the worlds most popular heroes.

Odysseus and the Illiad

Few stories are as well known as the ones about the siege of mighty Troy and the travels of the Greek hero Odysseus.
