    Olympians et al

    I am looking forward to the start of the Olympic games which got me thinking about mythological characters. Ever conscious of furthering the education of the loungers, here is a little test of your general knowledge. The table shows some Greeks and their Roman counterparts. Can you complete it?


    <table border=1><td>?</td><td>Vulcan</td><td>Moiras</td><td>?</td><td>?</td><td>Ulysses</td><td>Dionysus</td><td>?</td><td>?</td><td>Faunus</td><td>Ares</td><td>?</td><td>?</td><td>Saturn</td><td>Erinyes</td><td>?</td><td>?</td><td>Diana</td><td>Athene</td><td>?</td><td>?</td><td>Hercules</td><td>?</td><td>Pluto</td></table>
