Tour of ancient Greece

Ulysses: Odysseus or Ulysses (Greek ????????, Ulysses in Latin) was a legendary Greek heroes who appeared for the first time mentioned the Cypria or Ciprian Cantos, the first cycle of poems called Trojan, and then became one of the stars the Iliad and finally the central character and named the Odyssey, both works attributed to Homer, and later in many other works. He was king of Ithaca, one of the current Ionian Islands, located off the coast of western Greece. Anticlea Son of Laertes and the Odyssey, or in subsequent stories of Sisyphus and Anticlea. He was the husband of Penelope, father of Telemachus and Ctimene big brother, who suffered waiting for him for twenty years, ten of them had spent fighting the Trojan War and ten others trying to return to Ithaca with a series of problems and obstacles that had faced.

Song of Sirens: Sirens (Greek ???????) crazy sailors who heard their songs and made them throw themselves into the sea with them, which meant that they are drowning.

Ciclops: the Cyclops in Greek mythology (Greek ??????) were members of a race of giants with one eye in the middle of his forehead. There were two generations: the first and second. The Cyclops were the first generation children of Uranus and Gaia, and known craftsmen and builders. They were giants with one eye in the middle of the forehead and a horrible temper. According to Hesiod they were strong, stubborn, and "volatile emotions". Eventually his name became synonymous with strength and power, and is used to refer to very specific weapons manufactured.

They were three: Bronto, Estéropes and Arges (although some sources for change in Arges Acmónides or Piracmón). There were also four known Eurialos, Elatreo, and Traquio Halimede, which presumably were the first three children.

Uranus feared their strength and ended the tartare. Later, Cronus, another son of Uranus and Gaia, freed the Cyclops, along with hecatonquirs and Giants. Helped overthrow and castrate Uranus, Cronus, but he returned to jail to Tartarus, where they remained, guarded by Campe, until Zeus released them. Forging uses the lightning to Zeus as a weapon and helped in the war to overthrow Cronus and the other Titans (Titanomachy). Rays became the favorite weapon of Zeus were forged by the three Cyclops: Arges put the brightness, Bronto thunder and lightning Estéropes.

This first generation Ciclops also created an earthquake that produced by Poseidon's trident, bow and arrows of Artemis and the helmet of invisibility to Hades gave to Perseus on his quest to kill Medusa. Hephaestus helped and says that they built the first altar and the walls and fortifications of Tiryns and Mycenae in the Peloponnese, among others. The noise arising from the heart of volcanoes is attributed to its operations.

It later said it was Apollo who killed the Cyclops, after Zeus killed his son, Aesculapius with a thunderbolt forged for them. Although it is assumed that these Cyclopes were immortal, so perhaps that Apollo killed the Cyclops were their children. And the second generation: The second generation Ciclops was a primitive tribe of huge monsters one eye Odysseus discovered in a remote island (sometimes identified with Hesperia). It was said that the Giants were closely related to Phoenician and a tribe (the Phaiakai) arising from the drops of blood fell on Gaia (the earth) when Uranus was castrato.

However, the most famous of this generation Cyclops was a son of Poseidon and the nymph Toos named Polyphemus. Another second generation of Cyclopes was Telemans, a seer.

Nausicaa: In Greek mythology, Nausicaa (Greek: ????????) is the daughter of Alcínous, FEACO king and queen Arete. Appears in Book VI of Homer's Odyssey. His name in Greek, means "burner of ships".

Nausicaa as Homer describes Odysseus a girl who makes a big impression. Alcínous says the hero of Ithaca that would allow him to marry his daughter, but hinted that love does not reach eaten. Odysseus, after explaining his adventures to FEACO, sailed with the intention of returning to his island, where his wife Penelope awaits.

Achilles heel. The son of the goddess Thetis and the mortal Peleus, king of Phthia. Tethys, like all gods were immortal and wanted their children they were. But the father had a fatal, this was not possible.

The most popular version says that Thetis plunged to his son in the river can be so that the property had granted immortality to those who are bathed. But while submerged Tethys had to take the child by the right heel and this was the only body part that got wet and therefore was vulnerable.

Another version says that the Tethys operated a magical treatment consisted of submerging them in ambrosia during the day and purify them overnight. Thus Thetis had killed their six children, who survived the treatment. Peel had no knowledge of the activities of his wife but he was beginning to suspect that, at birth was stalking the Achilles and it was time to stop it. Disruption of the ritual that made the bone of the foot right child stay burned. This was arranged Quirin, the famous centaur medical experts, which will replace the bone was burned by the giant Damien, who in life had been a fast runner. This would explain the rapidity of Achilles.

After this incident Thetis and Peleus should be separated and neither wanted to take care of the child or the teacher is at the end of Achilles was Quirinus. Quirinus was instructed very well, both physically and intellectually was who gave the name of Achilles (so far as his name was Ligiró).

When Achilles was already a teenager he moved to the court of his father, and there he met Phthia Patroclus, who thereafter would be his best friend for life. The best known part of the life of Achilles is having to do with their participation in the Trojan War. Especially in the story that we left Homer in the Iliad his work.

Before the Trojan War, Thetis knew that Achilles would die in the course of the same. So he sent the king's court where Licomedes hid by posing with the name of Pyrrha women. During his stay he married Princess Deidamia who secretly gave him a son named Neoptolemus. After nine years the Achaeans learned they could not take Troy if Achilles did not participate in the war so they Odysseus went to fetch it Esciros Island, where he lived disguised as a girl daughter of the king. On arrival gave them jewels and a sword all the girls ran to the jewelry except one, who was watching the sword. Thus, recognized Odysseus and Achilles made to accompany Troad.

Another version says that Achilles disobey their parents and decided to go in knowing that Troy died, preferring to die fighting not to fight.

As during the first nine years of war nothing happened outstanding, one version or another is not too important. The point is that the end Achilles went to Troy with his troop mirmídons.

The best known part of the life of Achilles is having to do with their participation in the Trojan War. Especially in the story that we left Homer in the Iliad his work.

The Iliad describes the events of the tenth and final year of war. Homer presents · as the perfect hero. It is the bravest, the strongest and fastest of all the Achaeans and Trojan warriors. The participation of Achilles is essential because the only attacks that can contain trojans.

Homer begins by explaining that had spread among the Greeks a terrible plague. The reason is that Apollo is angry because Agamemnon has to Chryseis abducted, the daughter of crisis, a priest of the god. The Achaeans, led by Achilles, Agamemnon forced to return the girl to her father. But Agamemnon decides to take revenge by taking Briseis, the concubine of Achilles. The hero first tries to kill Agamemnon, but the Athena is calm and desist from the idea. Then Achilles proclaims that not fight over whether the king would return to Briseis.

In addition, neutral during a visit to the temple of Apollo, Priam's daughter falls in love with Polyxena and requests the hand of the young Hector. This is awarded to the change betrayed the Greeks, but Achilles refuses.

Thetis asks Zeus to grant victory to the Trojans and Achaeans will be clear that without Achilles and honor are nothing your child will be very high. Zeus does so and the Achaeans began to lose battle after battle. In the end, Agamemnon control your pride and go to beg the hero who returns to fight. But Achilles still not yielding. Meanwhile, the Trojan Hector approaching ships and Patroclus, wearing the armor of Achilles, comes to challenge him. Hector, who is the best Trojan warrior, killed at Patroclus.

Then Achilles rethink it, reconciles with Agamemnon and decides to return to the battlefield. Angry over the death of his friend, struggle with more fury than ever, killing enemies until only her face Hector dares planting. Then Zeus ordered Apollo to Hector to leave while still helping Athena Achilles. The fight is fierce but finally achieves Achilles kill his enemy.

After killing him, Achilles league the corpse of Hector to his chariot and dragged around the walls of Troy for 12 days, in revenge for the death of Patroclus. This is not nothing like the gods who ask that Thetis persuades his son to stop. Finally, here again the · the lifeless body of Hector to his father Priam. And so ends the involvement of Achilles in the Iliad.
