the virgin ones????
and not even all of those I mean we’re all looking at Artemis like “you were on pretty good terms with Orion and the nymphs weren’t you Lady”
and then the minor deities who only have one myth about them, like Selene or whoever.
and then most of the female deities. The “straight as a pretzel” effect in Greek mythology is primarily male. There’s a couple goddesses with whom there are possibilities if you read between the lines, like Artemis and Hekate and Persephone. But as far as explicitly stated, almost entirely male.
Which makes sense because the myths were written down by dudes and ladies doing things with ladies tends to frighten and confuse dudes.
but as far as male gods with multiple myths about them
Haides. Maybe Poseidon? *checks* Nope, not Poseidon, forgot about Pelops. And Haides is in Ares’ boat, where he’s got like one myth he’s the primary “character” in and that’s it. And he’s actually really known for being the faithful husband too so he has next to no female lovers by mythology standards either (only two affairs, go Haides!) Uhm…..certainly not Apollo. Certainly not Zeus. Not Hermes, either. Not Dionysus….and that’s all of the main pantheon.
So like, the only major male gods in the Hellenic pantheon are the two gods with next to no surviving myths. And Haides was likely to have had very few myths about him in ancient times either, because Haides is a bit of an exception to every rule.
*stares at Ares*
where are the men
