Mythical Chronology

A touch of insomnia last night led me to poking around the far, dusty reaches of the Internet. I found this completely fascinating. I have always wondered about the chronology of the Greek myths—the actual years, (or an educated guesstimate), things happened. To me, it is especially interesting to compare this chronology to that of Abrahamic religions. Pre-flood, it would seem, deities on Earth, of every pantheon, were really hoppin’.

The creator of this chart has done some truly excellent work. For more about it and his explanations, see the original site here.

About M. Ashley

Essayist and poet, my work has been rejected by some of the finest journals in America. Fortunately, it also gets accepted from time to time and has appeared in equally fine journals such as Word Riot, Inlandia, Brew City Magazine, and SageWoman among others.. In 2002, I was awarded the Academy of American Poets Prize for Vanderbilt University. For no good reason, I possess an unnecessarily dark humor which is why being third generation California Inland Empirian delights me so. My gods are weird. I once received $350 for writing a smartassed essay on “why the wise use of water is important in my daily life”. I am undoubtedly the Greek god Hermes’ special snowflake. I’m pretty sure I got into college via a series of fortuitous clerical errors. When I had to grow up and get a real job, I decided against it and stayed a writer. I have worked many odd—and I mean odd—jobs to support my habit: Commercial writer for country music hopefuls, resume massager, WalMart fitting room attendant and switchboard operator, telephone psychic.
