A Greek Myth is a story about Greek Gods or heroes who do

fantastical things to make the world we know and "love" today.

Here's an example:

There was a new Greek village, and they wanted to name it after

a God. Athena (Goddess of wisdom) and Poseidon (God of the Seas)

wanted the name. To win the event, Poseidon conjured up a horse (or

a stream in other stories). Athena made an olive tree pop up out of

nowhere. Athena won. The city is now what we all know as

Athens.
