The Lincoln memorial in Washington DC is based on the Monument to Zeus in ancient Greece.

If people tease each other about being struck by lightning after telling a lie they are reffering to Zeus' weapon of choice, the lightning bolt.

The face of God on the Sistine Chapel is patterened after the classical images of Zeus.

The term "By Jove" refers to Jupiter (Roman mythology which is the same as Zeus in Greek mythology).
