Theseus Kills the Minotaur on Crete Theseus and Pirithous Tiber River that runs through Rome Really dirty! Above, a recent aerial photograph of Rome's Tiber Island Uranus was the early god of the sky heavens, and Gaea's husband. He was horrified by the hideousness of his offspring with Gaea Titan, in Greek religion and mythology, one of 12 primeval deities. The female Titan is also called Titaness. The Titans—six sons and six daughters—were the children of Uranus and Gaea. They were Kronos, Iapetus, Hyperion, Oceanus, Coeus, Creus, Theia, Rhea, Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Tethys, and Themis. Heaven and Earth UNITE citizen, matron, curule magistrate, emperor, general, workman, slave The large overfold in the front of the body was called asinus, and part of the material under this was pulled up and draped over the sinus to form the umbo. The back of the toga was pulled over the head for religious ceremonies, as in this statueof Augustus as chief priest (pontifex maximus). It was difficult to put the toga on properly by oneself, and prominent Romans had slaves who were specially trained to perform this function. Togas were costly, heavy, and cumbersome to wear; the wearer looked dignified and stately but would have found it difficult to do anything very active. Citizens were supposed to wear togas for all public occasions (here, for example, is a man being married in a toga), but by the beginning of the Empire Augustus had to require citizens to wear the toga in the Forum. CLOTHING OF A ROMAN CITIZEN Greek tricked used to win against the Trojans City captured by the Greeks Ouranos = Uranus Uranus (/ˈjʊərənəs/ or /jʊˈreɪnəs/; Ancient Greek Οὐρανός, Ouranos [oːranós] meaning "sky" or "heaven") was the primal Greek god personifying the sky. His equivalent in Roman mythology was Caelus. In Ancient Greek literature, Uranus or Father Sky was the son and husband of Gaia, Mother Earth. Oceanus at Trevi While Ouranos detested all of his children, he detested the Elder Cyclopes and Hekatonkheires so much (mainly for their ugliness) that he imprisoned them in the terrifying abyss of Tartarus, which was itself deep within the Earth. Enraged, Gaea told her remaining twelve children (including Oceanus), the Titans, to take the mighty Scythe that she had forged, and avenge their brothers by overthrowing and killing their arrogant and sadistic father. Being immortal, Oceanus initially did not even understand what "killing" meant, but the concept was quickly explained to him by Themis, his most intelligent sister. However, while Oceanus detested his father, he was ambivalent at the prospect of murdering him, and did not step up to take the Scythe. Even after his younger brother Kronos did, Oceanus claimed that he had important business to attend to under the sea, and refused to help in the murder (along with his sisters Theia, Tethys, Themis, Phoebe, Mnemosyne, and Rhea). Thus, Oceanus was the only male Titan who was not involved in his father's murder. After committing his evil deed, Kronos hurled the all of the remaining pieces of Ouranos into the sea as a gesture of loathing against Oceanus for not helping slay their father. Much later, these particles would mix with the ocean spray to formAphrodite. The Hekatonkheires or Hecatonchires (stress o n the fourth syllable; singular: "Hekatonkheir" or "Hecatonchir" /ˈhɛkəˌtɒŋkər/; Greek:Ἑκατόγχει ρες, "hundred-handed ones"), also called the Centimanes /ˈsɛntᵻˌmeɪnz/ (Latin: Centima ni) or Hundred-handers, were figures in an archaic stage[clarification needed] of Greek mythology, three giants of incredible strength and ferocity that surpassed all of the Titans, whom they helped overthrow. Their name derives from the Greek ἑκατόν (hekaton; "hundred") and χείρ (kheir; "hand"), "each of them having a hundred hands and fifty heads" (Bibliotheca). Hesiod's Theogony (624, 639, 714, 734–35) reports that the three Hekatonkheires became the guards of the gates of Tartarus. Farewell speaker for senior class (with highest gradepoint average) "Veni, vidi, vici" (Classical Latin: [ˈweːniː ˈwiːdiː ˈwiːkiː]; Ecclesiastical Latin: [ˈvɛni ˈvidi ˈvitʃi]; "I came; I saw; I conquered") is a Latin phrase popularly attributed to Julius Caesar who, according to Appian, used the phrase in a letter to the Roman Senate around 47 BC after he had achieved a quick victory in his short war against Pharnaces II of Pontus at the Battle of Zela. The phrase is used to refer to a swift, conclusive victory. vetō, -āre, vetuī, vetitum - to forbid, veto Saturn Devouring His Son is the name given to a painting by Spanish artist Francisco Goya. According to the traditional interpretation, it depicts theGreek myth of the Titan Cronus (in the title Romanised to Saturn), who, fearing that he would be overthrown by one of his children, ate each oneupon their birth. The work is one of the 14 Black Paintings that Goya painted directly onto the walls of his house sometime between 1819 and 1823. It was transferred to canvas after Goya's death and has since been held in the Museo del Prado in Madrid.
