About this item
Did you know that museums were initially temples built to worship the nine muses? That Janus was the god of doorways and hallways, and after him we have named janitors? Where did these words—and other words, such as chaos, genius, nemesis, panic, and echo, come from? From the ancient stories of the Greeks—stories that rang so true and wise that the names of the characters have survived for centuries as words we use every day. This rich collection of myths is perfect for the classroom or as a gift book.
