QUIZ: How Would You Die in Greek Mythology?

I always figured I knew how I would die in Greek mythology (rejected, lovelorn, pecked to death by an eagle who is also somehow my father). But that was before I realized just how many ways there are to die in ancient Greece. You could be eaten by a Cyclops. You could be sacrificed to the gods for better weather. You could fly too close to the sun, melt your wings, and drown at sea. The list goes on and on.

Look, if you’ve never actually wondered how you would die in Greek mythology, well, now you have, and I’m real sorry about cursing you with the burden of curiosity. The good news is you don’t have to wonder for long.
