So you Think you know JACK about Greek Mythology

Greek Mythology Quiz

Good God! Actually, the Greek gods were often bad—with just as many faults as any human. But the ancient Greeks worshiped them anyway, and developed an elaborate set of myths about them that profoundly influenced later cultures—right up to the present day. So get an ambrosia snack and round up your muses, then see if your Greek IQ is fit for the gods.

TAKE THE TEST

----------------

Pleased to say 8/10 correct.

Obviously Prometheus helped you out with this Greek mythology quiz. You got 8/10 correct.


Looks like that mythology based English 102 course finally did some good.

9 for 10. I figured Zeus was subject to time, not destiny.

Pretty easy quiz.

And Psychadelic Mushrooms. That ain't a pinecone on the end of his staff, no matter what they try to tell you.

8/10 - only knew two for sure, the rest were guesses. I was never interested in Greek Mythology, never studied it, still don't care. And who is this Jack person? The greek god of bouncing rubber balls and picking up little metal thingys?

I am happy with my 7/10, as like vermin I only really knew two for sure. Number 9 is a trick question, but one a true follower of Greek Mythology would have gotten... as I did not. I knew Hercules did the 12 labors, but I was unsure of who this Heracles was.
