    The ancient Egyptians did not think of their gods as distant beings. When Hades stole her daughter Persephone, Demeter stopped all plants from growing, and people started starving. Mandell's article "A New Analysis of the Gender Attribution of the 'Great Goddess' of Teotihuacan" [22] published by Cambridge challenges the interpretation of the Great Goddess as being not only female but also male, a mixed-gender figure.

    Any of them might be Aphrodite in disguise. Sex is understood as the biological and anatomical difference between men and women, while gender is a socially and culturally constructed identity. She never got much attention in the old myths, but everyone was always happy to see her. Kratos breaks free of her sludge trap and manages to snatch the Eyes from Alecto, who retreats deeper into her sanctum before she realized they were gone. In response, Zeus robbed Prometheus of his immortality and forced him to endure great suffering by having an eagle consume him every day, fully healing and resurrecting him each time so that this cycle of torment would never cease.
