Athens, Greece – National Archaeological Museum – A Visit With The Gods & Goddesses

After blogging about Greece’s ancient Olympian immortals, I decided to return to the National Archaeological Museum to find statues of them. I was able to find 9 of the Olympians.  Hera, Ares, Hephaestus and Hestia could not be found!

Spending time at ruins and museums invigorates my curiosity to understand just how influential the ancient gods were in the day to day lives of the Grecians.
