GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

MYIAGROS

Greek Good Health God

God of Flies and Fly-Swatting

It’s true! He was employed by ZEUS to chase away the flies during important sacrifices. This must have been a real comfort to those involved.

In those ancient unsanitary times, flies were dangerous critters, bringing plague, sickness and death. In fact they were the original weapons of mass destruction. Without the benefit of fly-spray aerosols or fly-paper, only the Gods could keep them at bay. Few people know that BEELZEBUB himself started out as a fly-swatter.

Godchecker Tip: It’s a little-known fact that resting flies actually take-off backwards. That’s why it’s so difficult to obliterate them. Once you know which way they’re heading, it’s easy to catch them.

Armed with this secret knowledge, our Godchecker-In-Chief is an acknowledged Grandmaster of Fly-Catching, capable of catching any fly with his bare hands. And so Godchecker H.Q. remains a safe haven from plagues and pestilence.
