About This Quiz

The Greek myths are some of the oldest stories to be passed down to today's societies. They date back up to 5,000 years in various written forms, and some are believed to be even older in the oral tradition. There are many versions of most of them, some of which we have preserved in the form of plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and others. Some have been handed down as epics, such as the "Iliad" by Homer, which is the second oldest written epic in history (the oldest is Gilgamesh).

These stories are full of all sorts of heroes. Some of them are basically 90% meat, known only for their feats of incredible strength. Some are known for their warm hearts and for doing the right thing, and for learning how to be more decent in the face of temptation not to be. Others are known for their wit and cunning, for coming up with crafty schemes to get into cities or trick evil sorceresses. This means that whether you prefer your man to be all brawn and very little brain, mostly brain, or a mix of the two, then you're in luck; there's a Greek hero for you. Let's find yours!
