The Ancient Gods
Brief bios of the Gods and Godesses.
Bulfinch's Mythology: The Age of Fable or Stories of Gods and Heroes
We propose to tell the stories relating to them which have come down to us from the ancients, and which are alluded to by modern poets, essayists, and orators. Our readers may thus at the same time be entertained by the most charming fictions which fancy has ever created, and put in possession of information indispensable to every one who would read with intelligence the elegant literature of his own day."
Characters of Greek Mythology
http://www.geocities.com/hestia624/olympians.html The Olympians are the twelve Goddesses and Gods who reined over heaven and earth.

Greek Mythology: From the Illiad to the Fall of the last Tyrant
For us to try to imagine the Olympians of The Iliad we must abandon the dramatic stories of the Classical Greeks and the flights of fancy of the Romans. To use them would be like losing your car keys in a dark alley and going down the block to look for them under the streetlight because the lights’ better. Even though the Classical Greek and Roman versions of the Ancient Greek myths outnumber the authentic texts I will try to, eventually, only list the oldest stories on these pages. I hope you enjoy my effort... Xavr
Greek Mythology Link
Biographies - Greek Gods and Goddesses
The Greek Mythology Link is concerned with the creative, artistic, literary and inspiring aspects of the Greek myths deriving from its tales [see articles linked above]. The network created by genealogy has been given particular attention, as well as some structural aspects, which partly derive from it. The information provided in this site is based on original sources.
The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Greek Mythology
A text and pictorial guide to the Gods and Godesses of Greece.
The Mythology Project
It was designed to provide convenient access to the most important images (classical and later) used in the course, and to ancient sources from the Perseus Project Digital Library. The use of hypertext also makes it possible to show how the myths link with each other, whether through their characters, the places involved or through themes.
Whether you're looking for specific information on Greek Mythology for a school project, or simply enjoy a well-told and humorous myth, the gods have guided you to the right place.
Mythography was started in 1997 as a resource for information about mythology. Classical mythology (in other words, Greek and Roman mythology) was the original focus of the site. As one of the site's developers is an art historian and writer, the relationship between myth and art was soon added to the Mythography mix.
Pictures available here.
