Hephaestus, the son of Zeus and Hera, was the god of fire, metalworking, stone masonry, forges, and the art of sculpture. He was responsible for making all of the weapons for the gods of Olympus and had his own palace on the mountain where he forged all of his creations.
Atë was, according to differing accounts, either the daughter of Eris or, perhaps, one of the daughters of Zeus himself. She was known as the goddess of mischief and ruin in Greek mythology and was closely linked with the other gods and goddesses of negative situations.
Aristaeus was seen as a minor god in Greek mythology and was the protector and creator of a number of arts such as beekeeping and cheesemaking. Nice and peaceful, right? His parents were Apollo and nymph Cyrene, and he was born in Libya; later traveling and living in Thebes, and is said to have married the city’s founder.
Antheia, often linked with Aphrodite, was one of the Graces of Greek mythology, and was the goddess of flowers and flowery wreaths, as well as vegetation, blossoms, gardens, and individual love.
If any of the Greek gods or goddesses were around today, then Pheme would undoubtedly have been the busiest and most revered- because she was the personification of fame and renown. Those who she favored rose to prominence in society, while those who angered her would be scorned and plagued by rumors wherever they went. Seems very applicable today, right??
Hypnos was one of the primordial gods of Greek mythology and was known as the personification of sleep. He lived in a cave in the underworld with his brother, Thanatos, where there was no light being cast by the sun or the moon. In front of their cave were a number of sleep-inducing plants, such as poppies, and the river of forgetfulness flowed through.
Tyche was, unlike many other goddesses, one that represented both the good and bad aspects of her important characteristics- those of chance, fate, and fortune. Those who lived in ancient Greece believed her to be the reason behind all unexpected events in their lives. If, for example, someone did very well, despite having put in no effort, then they were said to be blessed by Tyche at birth…
Ploutus was a god that every ancient Greek wanted on their side- because he was the god of wealth. He was said to have been born on the island of Crete to a local hero called Iasion, and Demeter, the goddess of the harvest and fertility. He was usually depicted as a young boy carrying a horn-shaped container of wheat, which was known as a cornucopia.
One of the minor gods from Greek mythology, Zelus was, as his name might suggest, the god of dedication, envy, rivalry, jealousy, and zeal. His parents were Pallas and Styx, and he had three siblings- Nike, Kratos, and Bia.
Dionysus was, arguably, the most important Greek god that not many people have heard of, but m you should know, -because he was the god of wine, winemaking, fertility, madness, and theatre. It’s believed that he was worshipped by the Mycenaean Greeks as early as 1500 BC and, as a result of wine being such an important part of culture at the time, Dionysus was highly revered.
