(1) SHORT FAMILY TREE
This is a simple graphic depiction of the family of the main gods of the pantheon: beginning with the Protogenoi in thecentre, the ring of Titan gods and their families on the right, the children of Kronos in a ring at top, and the Olympianoffspring of Zeus forming a ring left. The spirits and sea-gods stand bottom left and centre. The background is from aC6th BC Athenian black figure vase painting.

The complete family tree of the gods is displayed over eight indexed charts. The basic structure follows Hesiod'sTheogony, but that author's genealogies have been expanded with a plethora of additional gods, spirits and creaturessourced from other classical sources.
