About the Author
My name is Evangelia Hatzitsinidou and I am the creator and author of www.greek-gods.info. The reason I created this website is because I am passionate over the ancient Greek culture and would like to provide this website's visitor with a brief insight in the wonderful Greek Mythology and Religion.
I am a web developer and teacher in Elementary School from Athens, Greece.
I studied Computer Science at the University of Athens, Greece (B.Sc.) and recently I completed my Master's studies (M.Sc.) with e-learning as the area of study.
My Master's Thesis was based on Greek mythology.
All information in this website is primarily taken from ancient Greek writings (see below). However, oftentimes some information is a combination of various myths. Please consider that it is a work in progress and by no means is complete- however, I am striving to update it frequently with further content.

You are free to adapt and use the images for commercial purposes without attributing the original author or source.
