Mythology

A Story by Haim Kadman
"

A short description of my early experiences.

"

I'm a lover of history since my early childhood. As a child of hardly four years I used to spend hours in our neighbors living room, watching photo albums of ancient Greece, I can still see in my mind's eye Alexander the great defeating the Persians led by their king Dariavesh.

They were childless our neighbors, and that's why they cared so much for me.

Nothing is more beautiful and rich than the Greek Mythology, although I do love our own history from Abraham up to the return to Zion, still Greek mythology fascinates me. I do like the Roman history too from the early days of Sula and Marius up to the end of the empire. I was more with Hannibal, Spartacus and Verkingetorix the Gale who have almost conquered Rome, than with the Roman emperors, and you can guess why. I never liked their policy of "bread and entertainment", which erased Athens wisdom " it isn't different from nowadays TV 'reality programs'.

Thus Hercule and his endeavors, Troy and  King Priamos, Paris his son and the beautiful Helene King Menelaos wife, Cassandra who begged them: 'Don't let the horse in!' Hector and Achilles, and Odiseus, and his long trip back home… Thesous who killed the minotaur but forgot to change his ship's black sails, to let his father Agheous know that he succeeded and he's  alive. Pericles the Athenian politician and commander so wise and resolute. But the greatest of them all is Leonides the Spartan king who stood the Persian invasion to Greece at Thermopile with his three hundred warriors up to their death.  

And all this is just a drop in the Aghaian sea.
