BBC: Thermopylae Mythologie grecque Une page de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La mythologie grecque est l'ensemble des mythes provenant de la Grèce antique. Ces récits, familiers à tous les anciens Grecs, forment les fondements de leur religion ainsi que de la représentation qu'ils se faisaient du monde, au moins jusqu'à Protagoras (Ve siècle av. J.-C.). Ils sont aussi à l'origine, pour une large part, de la mythologie romaine. D'abord véhiculés par la tradition orale, les mythes grecs nous sont essentiellement connus grâce à des témoignages antiques (artistiques et littéraires) qui proviennent de toute la Méditerranée et s'étalent sur plusieurs siècles. Riches et variés, ces récits ont constitué — et constituent encore aujourd'hui — des thèmes souvent traités dans l'art, la philosophie et la littérature occidentale. 1 636 articles sont actuellement liés au portail Lumière sur...

Mount Olympus Olympus' highest peak, Mytikas Every year thousands of people visit Olympus to admire its nature, to tour its slopes, and reach its peaks. Organized mountain refuges and various mountaineering and climbing routes are available to visitors, who want to explore its nature. The usual starting point for it is the town of Litochoro, on the eastern foothills of the mountain, 100 km from Thessaloniki, where, in the beginning of every summer, the Mountain Olympus Marathon terminates. Geography[edit] The shape of Olympus was formed by rain and wind, which produced an isolated tower almost 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) above the sea, which is only 18 kilometres (11 mi) away at Litochoro. Satellite photo of Olympus' region Olympus' dry foothills are known as the Xirokampi, containing chaparral and small animals. Geology[edit] Morphology[edit] The complicated geological past of the region is obvious on the morphology of Olympus and its National Park. Olympus has numerous ravines and gullies. Etymology[edit]

Twelve Olympians Fragment of a Hellenisticrelief (1st century BC–1st century AD) depicting the twelve Olympians carrying their attributes in procession; from left to right, Hestia (scepter), Hermes (winged cap and staff), Aphrodite (veiled), Ares (helmet and spear), Demeter (scepter and wheat sheaf), Hephaestus (staff), Hera (scepter), Poseidon (trident), Athena (owl and helmet), Zeus (thunderbolt and staff), Artemis (bow and quiver), Apollo (lyre), from the Walters Art Museum.[1] Although Hades was a major ancient Greek god, and was the brother of the first generation of Olympians (Zeus, Poseidon, Hera, Demeter, and Hestia), he resided in the underworld, far from Olympus, and thus was not usually considered to be one of the Olympians. Besides the twelve Olympians, there were many other cultic groupings of twelve gods. Olympians[edit] Twelve gods[edit] Pindar, in an ode written to be sung at Olympia c. 480 BC, has Heracles sacrificing, alongside the Alpheius, to the "twelve ruling gods":[15] List[edit] Notes
