Overview


From Apollo to Zeus, from Amun to Vishnu, this invaluable guide to mythology by Scottish archaeologist Alexander Murray is an indispensable companion for students of the great myths and legends of the world. Among the finest, most authoritative single-volume resource on Greek, Roman, Hindu, and Norse/Germanic myth, the text covers deities, heroes, creation myths, Vedic and Brahmanic gods, as well as the religious and mythological figures of ancient Egypt.
First published in 1897, the handbook was later completely revised and expanded and made more readily comprehensible by the addition of handsome new illustrations. Murray's incomparable scholarship and his animated, personable style make this an entertaining handbook for all those wishing to familiarize themselves with the grand and interesting legends of the ancient past.
