CLAS 315: WEEK IV
To seek and acquire information about Zeus, king of the Gods, and about his most famous residences: Olympia and Dodona
Study and take notes, in preparation for Yahoo! chat on the subject of Zeus. Any useful information about Zeus and his doings should be collected and saved. Information will be used in the next part of theassignment,
—The PERSEUS site's basic page on Olympia. .
–Visit the area of the sacred oracle of DODONA
—The Wikipedia article on DODONA
—A presentation by Prof. Joe STUBENRAUCH of Calvin College.
—The PERSEUS site's basic page on Dodona. Toward the bottom of the page there are many links to individual pictures of the site.
– A famous bronze statue from Dodona, as well as the famous Zeus from Sounion (or is it Poseidon??).
You should continue on from here. The more useful information you get the better. There was a Zeus temple in Athens, for example, called the Olympieion, and there was an oracle of Zeus in an Egyptian oasis called Siwah.
