  • End
  • Temple of Cybele
  • Now you're are my lions for my chariot races!
  • The huntress Atalanta was loved by many men for her great beauty and swiftness of foot. She wanted to know who to marry, so she went to an oracle. The oracle told her she mustn't be married for if she does get married she may continue to live but she will not be herself.
  • Symbolism
  • Atalanta had to find a way to stop all these men from trying to marry her, so she said that if any man can beat her in a race they will have her hand in marriage. She said that if they lost the race they would have to die. Many men tried to race and all but one lost. The one that won was named Hippomenes and he got the love goddess Aphrodite to give him apples to help him claim Atalanta as his wife, because he loved her. After winning, Hippomenes didnt thank Aphrodite which angered her.
  • Motif
  • You did thank me Hippomenes!
  • You did not listen Atalanta!
  • Aphrodite meant to make an example of both of them so to punish them she made them sleep together in the temple of Cybele . When the gods and goddesses found them together in such a holy temple they were shocked and hide their eyes from the profanity. Cybele was absolutely furious and embarrassed so to punish them she turned them into lions. Atalanta and Hippomenes were no longer themselves and all the people feared them. Despite this Cybele was still able to tame them enough to use them when she rode her chariots.
  • Theme
  • The symbol of this story is the golden apples. Whenever the apples surface bad things happen. For example when they are thrown in this story they cause Atlanta and Hippomenes to be turned into lions which is a symbol for punishment trickery.
  • The motif the author uses is the disregard of a higher power. For example Atalanta disregards her warning and gets married and is punished. Another example is when Hippomenes does not thank Hera and is also punished.
  • I'm so sorry!
  • The theme of this story is always be thankful for what is given to you. This is shown multiple time throughout the story most notable the gift represented from the apples and the advice that is given to Atalanta. When Hippomenes was not thankful to Aphrodite for the apples and Atalanta didn't take the oracles advice.They are then punished by Cybele.
  • Be thankful for the things your given and listen to the advice you are given!
