Hero Worship

================================================== One of the interesting and dynamic aspects of classical Greek mythology is its hero worship. Such worship often involved the elevating of an actual historical figure to the level of the superhuman. Other times the heroes were entirely imaginary. Arguably the most popular hero figure in the Greek folk tales is Heracles (Hercules). And, judging from syndicated television, he remains so today! In the Apology, Socrates mentions Palamedes and Ajax.
