in Greek Mythology
mythology also testifies to the existence of werewolves.
Zeus once disguised himself
as a traveler and sought hospitality in the court of
the vicious Arcadian King Lycaon. The King recognized
the god and tried to kill him. He served him human flesh.
God Zeus understood the terrible trick and did not eat.
Outraged, He destroyed the palace and condemned Lycaon
to spend the rest of his life as a wolf.
mythology was the origin of the word "Lycanthrope"
which is used to describe the werewolf phenomenon. (Greek
lykos - wolf, and anthropos - man.)
