Medea 3 to Miletus 2

Medea (3)

Medea (4)

A tragedy by the first century Roman poet, Ovid; only two lines of the play survive.

Medea (5)

The daughter of Idyia and Helios (the Sun).


The Medes were inhabitants of Asia Minor and subjects of the Assyrian Empire until circa 709 BCE.

The Medes derived their name from the notorious sorceress, Medea, after she fled Greece and settled in Asia Minor; the Assyrians ruled most of western and central Asia for approximately five hundred years (1229-709 BCE) and were finally deposed by the Medes.

The Medes were the first group to revolt against the Assyrians and, after ruling for four generations, set the stage for the formation of the Persian Empire; the Medes were united by a man named Deiokes (Deioces) who was their first king.

The Medes were composed of six separate tribes: Arizanti, Budii, Busae, Magi, Paratakeni (Parataceni) and Strukhates (Struchates).


The name that the Greeks used to refer to what we call The Persian War, i.e. the Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BCE.

After the Persians defeated the Medes and usurped their empire, they adopted the Mede style of dress and kept the Magi (a division of the Medes) as advisors and seers; for that reason, and perhaps as a subtle insult, the Greeks continued to refer to the Persians as Medes.

Mediterranean Sea

The son Oileus, king of Lorkis (Lorcis), and half brother of Lesser Aias.

Medon was killed during the siege of the city of Troy; he had been exiled from Lorkis because he had killed a relative of his step-mother, Eriopis.


One of the daughters of Phorkys (Phorcys) who were known collectively as the Gorgons.

Medusa’s sisters were named Sthenno, Euryale; Medusa was the only Gorgon who was mortal but anyone who gazed upon her face was turned to stone.

Perhaps three generations before Herakles (Heracles), the hero Perseus was sent by the king of the island of Seriphos, Polydektes (Polydectes), to kill Medusa and cut off her head; Perseus first sought out the sisters of the Gorgons, the Graiai (Gray Sisters), who were gray from birth, shared one tooth and one eye between them (later descriptions of the Graiae include a third sister, Deino, as one of the Graiai); Perseus stole their tooth and eye and, using them as ransom, forced the Graiai to give him the location of the nymphs who had possession of the Cap of Hades (which would make him invisible), a pair of winged sandals (for flying) and a kibisis (a bag to hold Medusa’s head); he later obtained a sickle (or sword) from Hermes and set out to slay Medusa.

With the help of Athene (Athena) he was able to cut off Medusa’s head; after the attack on their sister, Sthenno and Euryale chased Perseus but his flying sandals saved him; as Perseus flew across the Libyan desert the drops of blood from Medusa’s head produced a generation of serpents; also created from the blood of Medusa was the flying horse Pegasos (Pegasus) and the swordsman, Khrysaor (Chrysaor).

For more detailed information on Medusa I suggest that you consult the Immortals section.


A prefix meaning Great.


A commander in the Persian military during the reign of Darius I, circa 500 BCE.

Megabates came to prominence when Darius needed a worthy commander to lead an assault on the Greek island of Naxos; the Persian administrator of the city of Miletus, Aristagoras, had suggested that Naxos would be an easy target for Darius and plans were put into motion to send a 200 ships to Naxos.

The fleet gathered near the island of Khios (Chios); when Megabates was making his inspection of the fleet, he found one of the ships unguarded; Megabates had the ship’s captain bound with his head protruding through an oar-hole; Aristagoras appealed for mercy but Megabates insisted on the humiliating punishment; Aristagoras deliberately disobeyed Megabates and freed the errant captain; Megabates’ fury outweighed his desire for conquest and he plotted to disgrace Aristagoras at any cost.

Megabates secretly sent a messenger to Naxos and warned the unsuspecting islanders of the impending invasion; the people of Naxos made hasty preparations and were ready when the Persians arrived; a siege of four months ensued and the Persians realized that they could not afford to continue because their war-chest was empty and the easy victory which Aristagoras had promised was not to be had.

The Persians withdrew from Naxos; Aristagoras was blamed for the fiasco and Megabates had his revenge.


One of the seven Persians who successfully mounted the revolt which deposed the usurper, Smerdis, from the throne of the Persian Empire.

When the second king of the Persian Empire, Kambyses (Cambyses) was occupied with the subjugation of Egypt, a Mede named Smerdis assumed the role of Kambyses’ dead brother, also named Smerdis, and claimed the throne for himself; Kambyses had secretly arranged the murder of his brother, Smerdis, and therefore knew that the Smerdis on the throne was not his brother but before Kambyses could return to confront the false-Smerdis and reclaim his throne, he accidentally wounded himself with his own sword and died.

The false-Smerdis was very clever at concealing his true identity and never left the palace or allowed high ranking Persians to see him; the false-Smerdis not only bore the same name as Kambyses’ brother but was also physically similar to him, with one exception: the Median Smerdis had no ears; Kambyses had inflicted a punishment on the Mede that required that his ears be lopped off.

One of the seven conspirators, Otanes, was the first to suspect that something was wrong and he devised a plan to determine the truth of the matter; Otanes’ daughter, Phaedyme, was the wife the true-Smerdis and was occasionally required to attend the false-Smerdis as part of his pretense to the throne; Otanes instructed her to secretly feel Smerdis’ head to see if he had any ears; Phaedyme bravely obeyed her father and recognized the false-Smerdis for what he was.

Otanes began to recruit other Persians in what would ultimately be a rebellion; with the help of Megabyzus, Aspathines, Gobryas, Intaphrenes, Darius and Hydarnes, Otanes plotted to murder the false-Smerdis and reclaim the throne of the empire for the Persians; the seven rebels fought their way into the false-king’s chamber and killed him; when the populace found out what had transpired, a wave of violence swept the city and only darkness saved the Medes from complete extermination.

The seven men then debated as to which type of government to establish; the former king, Kambyses, had been cruel and excessive in the extreme but Darius argued for another monarchy and finally won the others to his point of view; Darius was installed as the third king of the Persian Empire in 521 BCE; Megabyzus and the other rebels were granted special privileges in the new kingdom and were allowed to have an audience with the king at any time unless he was with one of his wives.

Megara (1)

The daughter of Kreon (Creon), king of the city of Thebes and the wife of Herakles (Heracles).

After the young Herakles settled a quarrel for Kreon he was rewarded by being allowed to marry Megara; Hera, in her zeal to punish Zeus for having fathered Herakles, inflicted Herakles with a fit of madness and he murdered his children; the oldest artwork depicting this scene shows Megara escaping Herakles’ wrath but later versions insist that Megara was also murdered at the hands of the insane Herakles.

Megara (2)

The ancient Dorian city east of the Isthmus of Korinth (Corinth) on the coast of the Saronic Gulf.

The name, Megara, might be rendered as The Temples; originally known as Nisa, the city dates back to before the seventh century BCE and has a long history of colonization; after repeated disputes with Athens, the city lost its independence and, due to its crucial geographic location, the control of the city was in constant dispute.

Megara (3)

The legendary seer who could understand the speech of animals.

His servants had killed some adult snakes and Melampous, out of pity, took the orphaned baby snakes into his care and, while he was sleeping, the tiny serpents licked his ears thus giving him the unusual power of understanding animal speech.

He was the son of Amythaon and the brother of Bias; when he wanted to marry the beautiful maiden, Pero, her father insisted that any suitor must show his cunning and bravery by stealing the cattle of the mighty Iphiklos (Iphiclos); Melampous was caught by Iphiklos but he was allowed to go free after he rendered his services as a seer to Iphiklos for one year and was finally allowed to marry Pero.

He is also noted as the healer who was called upon by the Argives to cure their women of a strange illness that made them lose their senses; he proposed that they should give him half the kingship in return for his services; at first they refused his seemingly arrogant offer but, when more and more women became afflicted with madness, they agreed to his terms; Melampous was not an easy man to please and he insisted that, in exchange for his services, he and his brother, Bias, both be made kings.

He and his brothers were raised in Kolkhis (Colchis) but after their father died, he and his brothers left Kolkhis to avenge their father’s ill treatment by king Athamas of Orkhomenos (Orchomenos) and were stranded on the Island of Ares in the Euxine (Black Sea); they were rescued from the island by the Argonauts; he and his brothers joined the crew of the Argo and returned to Kolkhis.

His brothers were: Kytissoros (Cytissoros), Phrontis and Argus.


The collective name for the sisters of Meleagros (Meleager) who were transformed into guinea hens by Artemis in order to relieve their grief over the death of their brother.


The son of Oineus and Althaia; the husband of Kleopatra (Cleopatra).

There are several interesting stories that revolve around Meleagros:

  1. When Iason (Jason) was organizing the quest for the Golden Fleece, Meleagros was very young but very strong; his father, Oineus, allowed Meleagros to go on the quest on the condition that his half-brother, Laokoon (Laocoon), go along to protect him; thus Laokoon and Meleagros were both Argonauts;
  2. When he was a young man and had just married Kleopatra, he refused to help defend his city, Kalydon (Calydon), against an attack by the Kouretes; the elders of the city offered many gifts to Meleagros if he would help defend the city and king Oineus begged for his son to take up the sword and save the city from certain destruction but Meleagros refused to fight; finally, at the pleading of his wife, Kleopatra, Meleagros donned his armor and entered the battle at the last moment; the city was saved but the gifts that had been offered were not given because the people of Kalydon felt that Meleagros had not done his duty in a proper way;
  3. Meleagros organized one of the most celebrated events in Greek prehistory, the Kalydonian (Calydonian) Hunt, and succeeded in killing the supernatural boar that Artemis had sent to ravage the countryside around the city of Kalydon; many notable heroes gathered in Kalydon to participate in the Hunt; the marauding boar was wounded by the huntress, Atalanta, and then killed by Meleagros; Meleagros awarded the hide of the boar to Atalanta but his uncle (or uncles) tried to take the boar hide away from Atalanta and Meleagros killed him (or them); Meleagros’ mother, Althaia, never forgave Meleagros for killing her brothers and her vengeance was fatal for Meleagros.

When he was born, Meleagros was destined to die when the wood in the fireplace burned away; as a loving mother, Althaia, had taken the wood from the fireplace and preserved it so that her son might have a long life; when Meleagros killed her brother(s), she took the wood she had hidden at Meleagros’ birth and burned it; Meleagros died.

His name may also be rendered as Meleagrus.

    Having lost the war to the Spartans, the citizens of Athens elected thirty men to lead the new post-war government; these men became known as the Thirty Tyrants; the short lived government they comprised was an oligarchy.

    The tyrants immediately began to prosecute Athenians who had been Spartan informers and collaborators during the long, hard war; the punishment of the guilty seemed appropriate to the common citizens and aristocrats alike but it soon became clear that the executions and banishments were going beyond the bounds of necessity or prudence; open hostilities soon developed between members of the Thirty and their authority and rule came to an end after one year.
