This coming month, the seventh month of the modern Iranian Calendar, is Mithra (Mehr)! In Persian langauge, when you say "he has Mithra", it means "he is kind"!

Atlas was indeed a titan (his father was a titan and his mother was a nymph...). Funny thing about some of the modern depictions of him supportinh the globe on his back down on one knee is that the ancient Greeks probably imagined him carrying the flat earth...

Maybe the common folk, but many greek scholars believed the earth was round. I believe the first estimate of the radius of the earth was from a greek fellow (forget his name) in Alexandria.

Ullr, the Norse god of archery, is cool and so is the Greek goddess Artemis. A divine match shall I say?
