Ancient Greece: fun tidbits ✨

Me, being super proud that I can just pull these out of my head 😤

Fun facts~

  • About 87% of all Greek heroes are men
  • The term “sapphic” comes from the name “Sappho”, a lesbian poet
  • And the term “lesbian” comes from the name of an island called “Lesbos”—where Sappho lived
  • 93% of normal human women mentioned were usually raped by gods and/or a mother of a hero
  • About half of all known goddesses were virgins. Ancient Greeks had a strange fascination with virginity—

Okay byee
