Greek gods and heroes

From A to Z — Athena to the zodiac — Greek mythology is comprised of fantastical stories of heroism and deceit starring beautiful goddesses, sculpted gods and heinous beasts.

The latest attempt to bring Greek mythology to modern-day life happens Friday, July 25, with the theatrical release of “Hercules,” starring Dwayne Johnson.

Although Hercules is one of the most famous names in Greek mythology, he’s far from the only unbelievable tale the ancient Greeks gave the world.

From generation to generation, the tales of Greek mythology — the wars, the death, the misfortune and strength — have been shared. Take this quiz, inspired by the anecdotes in “The Mythology Handbook,” to find out how much you know.
