It's not clear from your picture, but the face is most probably a Gorgoneion, a recurring element of Athena's iconography: In Ancient Greece, the Gorgoneion (Greek: Γοργόνειον) was a special apotropaic amulet showing the Gorgon head, used most famously by the Olympian deities Athena and Zeus: both are said to have worn the gorgoneion as a protective pendant....

Yes! Tyr was a norse God of law and war. Evidence suggests that he was once head of the pantheon, but was supplanted by Odin and Thor. He was wise and brave, the only of the gods courageous enough to offer his hand as collateral when they wanted to bind Fenris. Forseti, the son of Balder, is mentioned by Snorri as a good mediator and judge. His name also ...

wip Do know that as good as everything we know of Norse mythology comes from writers after the Christianization of Scandinavia so I can't write about any older myths (this might be my shortcoming since there are definitely users on this site with a much greater knowledge on this subject than myself). The only connection Sif would have to warrior culture ...

The name that you saw was most likely supposed to be transliterated as Nȧkith. The letter ȧ was used for 𓇋 in one older transliteration scheme of Egyptian, while most transliteration schemes transliterate the same letter as ı͗. The name in hieroglyphics is given as (𓈖𓇋𓎡𓇌𓍿 nı͗kyṯ) in the two below sources. The image and the text around it are given in ...

Hera Of the three sisters Hera is the only one regarding whom I have found mention of her direct involvement in a narrated fight scene. Dionysos' War in India In Book 36 of Nonnus' Dionysiaca,1 the Olympian deities square off against one another in a battle during the war waged by the young wine-god Dionysos [Dionysus] against his kinsman King Deriades of ...

Unfortunately, Varro's Antiquities is only known through references like this one. Searching for #abeon in the Packhum corpus (a collection of, theoretically, all surviving Latin literature before 200 CE) gives no results, and #adeon gives only false positives. So it seems no references to them survive from classical times. So the best information we have on ...

For the most part there is no association between Canaanite gods and pigs. Canaanites, like Israelites, didn't eat pigs, which weren't indigenous to the land. In fact, archaeologists often take pig bones as a sign that a settlement was Philistine (see for example this paper). So pigs don't make many appearances in Canaanite myth either. However, there is ...

In the Iliad (Book V) Ares complains to Zeus that he lets Athena - the pestilent maiden - get away with anything: Speedily he came to the abode of the gods, to steep Olympus, and sate him down by the side of Zeus, son of Cronos, grieved at heart, and shewed the immortal blood flowing from the wound, and with wailing spake to him winged words: “Father Zeus, ...

Basically you'd have to modernize an existing name to your purpose. *(F) = Female *(M) = Male Hesiod, Theogony 211ff (trans.

Best two-edged name I can think of is IEZABEL (Ἰεζάβελ): Greek form of Hebrew Iyzebel ("Ba'al exalts," "unchaste," or "without cohabitation"), but meaning "chaste, intact.". Modern-day form would be Isabelle. Gift: CALLIDORA, composed of kallos "beauty" and doron "gift" EUDORA, eu "good" and doron "gift" ISIDORA, "gift of Isis" Other: RHEBEKKA, Greek ...
