    Description:
    In Greek Mythology, Helen was famous for being one of
    the contentmost beautiful women on the planet, and many people wanted to have her. At the same time, many people hated her for being so beautiful, because it caused problems with relationships. Her beauty was also one of the main causes of the Trojan war. Helen was the daughter of Zeus and Leda, sister of Pollux, Castor, and Clytemnestra and and the wife of King Menelaus of Sparta. It is believed that Leda was raped by Zeus, while he was disguised as a swan, and she produced two eggs. From one of your page here.those eggs came Helen, along with her brother, Pollux. (Mythenc

    Modern Times:
    Companies name their products after the goddess Athena. Some examples of this are Athena speakers, which can be surround sound and stereo speakers. Another example of companies naming their products after Athena is a rover by NASA than has explored Mars. THe last example of Athena in modern culture is a computer group called "Athena Smart Card Solutions". They sell keyboards, USB cards and Windows products. The singing group The Who made a song called Athena.

    Athena: changing lives around her:
    Athena is known as Athens goddess. She became known as this by giving Athenians an olive tree. The tree gave the Athenians wealth and money, and they used this wealth and money to buy vases and build statues to beautify the city. If we didnt have an olive tree, we would not have olive oil, giving us more food options. The Parthenon was built for her, making it one of the worlds most recognizable buildings. In Greece, Athena is still a goddess, and one of the most important ones. Cities in the United States are named after Athena
    ...
    Poseidon and Athena both wanted to make Athens their homes. The two made up things that would be most useful and voted on by the people. Poseidon made a spring which salt water sprouted from and Athena made an olive tree, which the people voted more useful. The Parthenon was then built to honor the great goddess Athena. This myth is carved on the ceiling and her birth was carved on the floor. To this day, the Parthenon still remains Greece's most treasured monuments.

    About Helios: Helios
    knows everything
    Relations: Helios is the son of the titans Hyperion and Theia. Helios' sisters are Eos,the titanic goddess and Selene, the moon goddess. His wife was Clymene, which is the mother of Phaethon. Helios' children are Phaethon, the Charites, and the Heliades.(Wikipedia.com) Helios was also married to Perseis, who mothered Aeetes, Circe, and Pasiphae. (N.S. Gill)
    Myths: Once Clymene told Phaethon that he was the son of Helios, Phaethon went to Helios to confirm this. Feeling guilty for not being in his son's life for many years, Helios told Phaethon that he could have whatever he wanted, and he swore this oath by Styx. Phaethon choose to take a ride in Helios' golden chariot across the sky. Not wanting to jeapordize the safety of the Earth, Helios denied this to Phaethon, but Phaethon then pointed out that once an oath is sworn by Styx, it cannot be broken. As soon as Phaethon took off on the chariot, he lost control of the horses causing them to fly way too high, making the earth freeze, and then way too low, making the earth burn. Zeus then took the responsibility to stop Phaethon, and took after him throwing thunderbolts towards the chariot. One of Zeus' thunderbolts struck and killed Phaethon and the horses. (Nick Pontikis)
    Another time, a woman named Arge, who was very conceited, claimed that she could run as fast as Helios. To the Gods, when a human compared themselves with the Gods, it was very disrespectful. Helios felt he had to punish her, so he turned her into a doe.
    Today's Influences: Today the name Helios is used as the name of many companies, such as:
