My new novel, Aphrodite’s Tears, is set in the Greek islands, and as the title suggests, I touch on Greek mythology throughout the book.

Do you know your Zeus from your Jupiter, your Athena from your Minerva? There’s a close correlation between Greek and Roman anthology, and quite the cast of characters to remember.

Here’s a quick and simple guide to the main players in Greek mythology – the twelve Olympians, who were the major deities of Mount Olympus – each with a visual depiction in classical sculpture.

    USNS ZEUS a Military Sealift Command special missions ship (cable repair ship) that operated out of Portland UK for several months in 2000. Whenever I was off work I would go to Weylmouth. I had a favorite internet access above a chip shop. I would get Fish and Chips and a Veggie Burger to take back to the ship every evening we were in port.
