In this Index you'll find three columns: "Names", "What", "Where".
Behind it are twelve stories, each referring to a particular Greek myth.
You'll find them all listed in the
Cryptomenu

Look up a name and find its location in the "Where ?" column below.
To read the story belonging to the name, go to the right frame,
scroll to the corresponding darkblue item number
and click on it.

For example:
The first name "Abraham" is mentioned in Myth number 7, in the 8th item.
So, in the right frame, scroll down to the 7th Myth, click on Item 8,
and there you are!
If no item number is given, the name is part of the myth's leading character.
The number of a character's proper location is in bold

Names in red indicate direct links to illustrations or else,
which in general will be shown in a new window.
