The Winds -  The figures pictured here, according to Greek mythology, are the Winds. They are, from left to right, top to bottom: Lips, Zephryus, Eurus, and Apeliotes. Lips, or Livos, was the god of the southwest wind. Usually he was shown holding a ship's sternpost because when the wind blew form the southwest into Athens' port harbor of Piraeus, ships could not sail. Zephyrus was the god of the west wind. Zephyrus was the gentlest of the winds and considered a harbinger of springtime. He was pictured with flowers that indicated a mild light breeze. Eurus, or Euros, was the god of the east wind. The folds of his clothes suggested heavy clouds. Apeliotes was the southeast wind, which was associated with good rain. Thus in art he was shown carrying fruit and draped in a cloth that concealed flowers or grain. Greek myth listed eight Winds. The other four are: Boreas (cold north wind), Kaikias (northeast wind), Notos (south wind), and Skiron (northwest wind).     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

The fall and death of Ahmed Gran (1528-1540), shot by a Portuguese musketeer. Ahmed Gran was probably the fiercest Muslim warrior to battle the Christians in Ethiopia.
