About the Author
My name is Evangelia Hatzitsinidou and I am the creator and author of www.greek-gods.info. The reason I created this website is because I have a passion for ancient Greek culture and want to give visitors to this website a brief glimpse into the wonderful Greek Mythology and religion.
All information on this website is mainly taken from ancient Greek writings (see below). However, often some information is a combination of different myths. Please note that this is a "work in progress" and is by no means complete - however, I make every effort to update it regularly with more content.
All images are either from my personal collection or have been collected from sources who have either placed their images in the public domain, relinquished their copyright, or whose copyright has expired. You are free to adapt and use the images for commercial purposes without crediting the original author or source. Although absolutely not required, I would welcome a link back to my website www.greek-gods.info.
