L is for Lamia
|Herbert James Draper [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons|
Lamia went mad with grief, and took her revenge by devouring the children of others. Some versions of the tale suggest that Lamia was turned into a monster because of this, with a serpents tale below the waist.
Lamia eventually became the Lamiae, monsters similar to vampires; beautiful women who seduced men and then drank their blood.
One thing I will take heart from after reading of the Greek Gods in your A to Z, is that even when I am having a bad bad I know it could be worse.ReplyDelete
'bad bad' is bad day, my keyboard has been having problems with Greek Gods. Apparently they say they dont like my type . . . . . .Delete
HAH HAHAH HAH HAHH AH AHHAH HAH AHhaah hahah ahah haha h ha haha
How is it that this is new to me? Interesting tale though.ReplyDelete
Yikes. I love and agree with Rob's comment.ReplyDelete
That is awesome. This is one of my favorite A to Z blogs!ReplyDelete
I'm new to this story. Hera is one jealous god, but then Zeus should have kept his pants on. To kill all her children and make it so her eyes could never close is quite the punishment.ReplyDelete
This story is absolutely incredible Laura, seriously tragic stuff that'd even turn your head nowadays.ReplyDelete
Similar to vampires? Didn't know that.ReplyDelete
Amazing painting. Studied art of that age in college.
I forgot that Skylla was her daughter. The cursed Skylla is one of my favorites.ReplyDelete
I really liked this post! Because I've always liked mythology, I found your posts very interesting.ReplyDelete
If Zeus had kept his zipper zipped (yeah, I know, no zippers)and that goes for the other gods and goddess Greek mythology would be so dull.ReplyDelete
Wow, another sad tale are created because of a woman's jealousy. This seems to be a common theme in Greek Mythology.ReplyDelete
Very interesting theme for A to Z! I didn't know this story.ReplyDelete
