How Would You Die in Greek Mythology?

QUIZ: How Would You Die in Greek Mythology?

20th Century Fox

I always figured I knew how I would die in Greek mythology (rejected, lovelorn, pecked to death by an eagle who is also somehow my father). But that was before I started blogging The Odyssey and realized just how many ways there are to die. You could take an arrow to the foot. You could be sacrificed to the gods for better weather. You could get yourself kicked off a cliff and eaten by a turtle. The list goes on and on.

Look, if you’ve never actually wondered how you would die in Greek mythology, well, now you have, and I’m real sorry about cursing you with the burden of curiosity. The good news is you don’t have to wonder for long.
