The stories of love, revenge, conceit and power are why Greek mythology has held our fascination throughout the ages. And talk about plot twists! From shape-shifting to curses and never-ending tortures, the Greek myths were spellbinding. For instance, Hades had a cap or helmet that made its wearer invisible.
