  • Mythology research help

    Hey everyone, I'm looking for any stories throughout ancient mythology involving a character running away from his problems rather than facing them and paying the price for it. Any ideas?

    Are you willing to count the Old Testament, or are you looking for Greek/Roman? If so, what about Jonah and the whale?
    If you have someone on the set for the hair, why would you not have someone for the words?

      I can't think of any characters like that off the top of my head, but Bulfynch's Mythology is one of THE references on mythology, from the Greeks and Romans to the Norse, the Medieval myths and more. A must have for the personal home library.


      And: ditto on Aquarius men.

        Anything. Bible works too.
