Zeus Picture

Zeus, the Thunderer, was the absolute King who ruled the Gods of the Greek World from atop Mount Olympus. He was considered the most powerful of the gods, as the wielder of thunderbolts, dispenser of judgement, and protector of travellers, guests and supplicants. His attributes include the mighty oak tree, the eagle, and thunder.
