Mythology Mixture Trivia Questions

1. Slow Joey wants the council to improve public transport. Which dog-headed god of the dead does he mistakenly pray to?

From Quiz
Slow Joey's Guide to the Gods

Answer: Anubis

Whilst a new bus would relieve Slow Joey's transport problems, Anubis is better suited at deciding the fate of Egyptians in the afterlife.

2. This Aztec god is also god of the north star and god of the hunt. He is the father of two better known Aztec deities, Huitzilopochtli and Quetzalcoatl.

From Quiz Let Slip The Gods of War

Answer: Mixcoatl

Mixcoatl, whose name can be translated as "cloud serpent," is also identified with the stars and the Milky Way. Kukailimoku is an Hawaiian god of war, while Hedylogos is a Greek goddess of sweet talk and flattery. The coatimundi is a mistaken name for the coati, a South American member of the raccoon family.

3. The Greek Titan Prometheus earned the enmity of Zeus, first by tricking him into accepting sacrifices without any meat, and later, by stealing fire from the gods and giving it to mankind. For his offenses, how was Prometheus punished?

From Quiz More Than You Have Bargained For

Answer: He was tied to a rock and attacked by an eagle

The Greek Olympian gods overthrew the Titans, who were led by Kronos and were the sons of Gaea and Uranus (the Earth and Sky respectively). After the war, or Titanomachy, many of them were punished: shut into Tartarus, or, in the case of Atlas, forced to carry the world. Prometheus, a Titan, wasn't punished (yet) because he was sympathetic with the gods. It wouldn't last long, however. Prometheus was a trickster, often attempting to deceive the gods in the name of humanity. When Zeus demanded sacrifice, Prometheus offered him a bargain. Zeus could choose between bones hidden in animal fat, or meat hidden inside an animal skeleton. Zeus chose the fat, which looked more appetizing, but didn't actually have any meat in it. Thus, the Greeks weren't forced to sacrifice actual meat to their chief deity. Later, Prometheus stole fire and gave it to mortals. To punish the humans, Zeus sent down Pandora, the first woman, who introduced evil into the world. To punish Prometheus, he had Hephaestus fashion an unbreakable chain and a bronze eagle. Prometheus was tied to a mountain in the Caucasus, where the eagle would peck at his liver during the day. However, since Prometheus was immortal, the liver would grow back overnight, and the onslaught would continue. Zeus offered to let Prometheus free if the Titan would use his powers of prophecy and reveal how Zeus might somehow be overthrown by one of his children. Prometheus refused. Finally, he was released when Chiron, an immortal centaur, agreed to die in his place, and Heracles killed the eagle.

4. Let us begin our journey by taking a look at Norse mythology. All began in Ginnungagap, a deep empty space between realms of heat and ice. Frost formed and became a giant. What was his name?

From Quiz The Mythology of Snow and Ice

Answer: Ymir

Agir was ruler of the sea. Ra was keeper of the drowned and consort of Agir. Andhrimnir was the cook of the gods.

5. Which goddess is extremely beautiful, associated with love, eternal youth, and the life cycle nature and humans?

From Quiz Greek, Roman and Egyptian Oh My!

Answer: Aphrodite

Aphrodite was born when Titan killed his father and threw his genitals into the water of Paphos. She loved Ares, the God of War, and had an affair with him even though she was forced to marry Hephaestus, the God of Iron.

6. Which ancient Canaanite god had a name that meant "master" or "owner"?

From Quiz Ancient Belief Systems And Their Gods

Answer: Ba'al

According to ancient Canaanite legend, Ba'al was the ruler of Heaven as well as being the god of the sun, rain, thunder and fertility. He was also considered to be the god of agriculture. The god that was opposed by the biblical prophets as "Baal" was usually a version of Baal-Hadad, who was a deity of the Hittites, the Syrians, and the Assyrians. Although Baal worship extended from the land of the Canaanites to the land of the Phoenicians, it was vigorously opposed by many of the Biblical prophets and by several of the kings of Judah. Ba'al-type gods were often worshiped in "high places", with the prophets of Baal described as engaging in various forms of self-mutilation, but one of the main objections to Baal worship by the Old Testament prophets was its association with ritual sex. This objection was closely followed by another, that of child sacrifice. For a more in-depth contemporary description of the deity known as Ba'al, read the 18th chapter of First Kings.

7. To what mythological grouping of Gods do English speaking countries owe most of the names of the days of the week?

From Quiz Mythology Mash Up

Answer: Norse

Tuesday is named for Tyr (Tiw), Wednesday comes from Odin (Woden), Thor gives us Thursday, and Friday honors Frey. The Norse pantheon accounts for 57% of day names. The other three days get their names from heavenly bodies, Monday for the moon, Sunday for the sun, and Saturday for Saturn.

8. What was Tawaret the goddess of?

From Quiz Gods and Goddesses

Answer: Pregnancy

Tawaret was the Egyptian goddess of pregnancy, childbirth, and fertility. She is often shown with a hippopotamus's head, a pregnant belly, and long human hair.

9. What two brothers in Greek myth were the gods of sleep and death?

From Quiz Crash Course in Mythology

Answer: Hypnos and Thanatos

Hypnos and Thanatos. Give yourself a pat on the back if you said Hades. Hades was the lord of the Underworld and Thanatos was the god of Death. Helios was the god of the sun, Ares that of war. Theseus was a Greek hero and Psyche was a woman who accidentally made Eros fall in love with her. Necros does not exist. I made him up.

10. In the Greek pantheon, who is the god of the underworld?

19. What was the name of the fire breathing creature slain by Gilgamesh and Enkidu?

From Quiz Very Tough World Myth!

Answer: Humbaba

One of my favorite ancient epic stories, the Gilgamesh featured the battle between the friends Gilgamesh and Enkidu and their adversary, the monster Humbaba that was created by the gods to defeat the friends. These good pals also were able to defeat a monstrous bull sent by Ishtar to kill them. In the end, poor Enkidu died in this battle, leaving Gilgamesh to search the earth for everlasting life.

20. Mentioned in the Bible and considered a major god in Canaan, who was considered a god of fertility and the Lord of Rain and Dew?

26. Slow Joey is having a hard time moving his couch. He'd probably be better off asking a neighbour than praying to this divine twin or his immortal brother.

From Quiz Slow Joey's Guide to the Gods

Answer: Castor

Castor is a twin in both the Greek and Roman mythologies. In some stories both twins are mortal, sometimes both are immortal, but if only one is mortal it is always Castor. Castors are wheels that fit the bottom of furniture, making it easier to move. Slow Joey wishes his couch had castors!

29. This god's name means "little fish". Who was he, according to the ancient Philistines?

From Quiz Ancient Belief Systems And Their Gods

Answer: Dagon

The Philistine god Dagon was usually portrayed as a half man/half fish, as he was portrayed in the earlier Babylonian culture, which the Philistines had borrowed from. Several famous incidents in the Bible involved Dagon idolatry; these include the death of Samson (Judges 16), the attempted looting of the Ark of the Covenant (1 Samuel 5), and the beheading of King Saul (1 Samuel 31). In the book of Judges, chapter 16, one can read of an incident involving Samson and the Philistine god, Dagon.

30. King Arthur wielded the legendary sword Excalibur. According to the "Post Vulgate Cycle" and a famous British comedy troupe, how was he said to come to possess it?

From Quiz Mythology Mash Up

Answer: A "farcical" aquatic ceremony

Arthur received Excalibur from The Lady of the Lake. The "farcical aquatic ceremony" answer was my tribute to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" as quoted by Dennis: "Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate of the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony."
