After they have bathed their soft skin in the brook, Permessus, or Hippocrene, “The Horse’s Spring,” or the holy Olmeius, at the very peak of Helicon they perform their choral dances, lovely and enticing, with firm and flowing steps.From here they set forth, enveloped and invisible in an impenetrable mist and proceed on their way in the night, singing hymns with exquisite voice in praise of: Zeus, who bears the aegis, and his queen Hera, of Argos, who walks on golden sandals, and bright-eyed Athena, daughter of aegis-bearing Zeus, and Phoebus Apollo, and Artemis, who delights in shooting arrows, and Poseidon, who firmly embraces the earth and violently shakes it, and revered Themis, and Aphrodite, with her seductive eyes, and golden-crowned Hebe, and beautiful Dione, and Leto, and Iapetus, and wily Cronus, and Eos, and great Helius, and bright Selene, and Earth, and great Oceanus, and black Night, and the holy race of the other immortals, who live forever.Aquila It was predicted that Cronus would die at the hand of his own child so he swallowed five of them as they were born.His wife, Rhea, and his mother-in-law, Gaia, protected the sixth child, Zeus, by giving Cronus a stone wrapped in a blanket instead of the baby.Ancient Greeks were interested in understanding their place in the world around them.

Central to the lives of Ancient Greeks and found fittingly in the center of Hesiod's was a myth that discussed the connection they had to the gods and to the universe, in general.When they died, it was as though they were overcome with sleep, and they had all good things; for the fruitful earth unforced bare them fruit abundantly and without stint.
The Queen, being very vain, boasted about her own beauty, saying she was even more beautiful than the Nereids (sea nymphs). To cool his anger, Cassiopeia chained her daughter to a rock on the beach as a sacrifice to the sea monster Cetus, also known as The Kraken.
The sweet sound flows from their tireless lips and the household of loud-thundering Zeus, their father, laughs in joy at their song, resounding pure as a lily.
The peaks of snowy Olympus and the homes of the gods resound.
Andromeda was saved at the last minute by her hero and love interest, Perseus, who killed Cetus by showing him the severed head of Medussa and thus turning him to stone.
Andromeda eventually married Perseus and went on to become the mother of Perses who founded the kingdom of Persia, and she is also became the great grandmother of Hercules.
