 Mars

(Greek Ares)

 
Ares  (ār“ēz) , in Greek religion and mythology, Olympian god of war. He is usually said to be the son of Zeus and Hera; but in some legends he and Eris, his twin sister, were born when Hera touched a flower. A fierce warrior, he loved battle and often took part in conflicts between mortals. Ares killed Halirrhothios, son of Poseidon, when the youth violated his daughter, Alcippe. For this crime Ares was judged by a tribunal of the 12 Olympians and acquitted. The hill on which the trial took place, the Areopagus, was named for him. The worship of Ares was not as important as that of Mars, with whom he was identified by the Romans. ares.gif (19973 bytes)

1. Roman god of war, Greek Ares. Before being associated with Ares, Mars was principally an agricultural god in Roman mythology. Ares was mainly worshipped in Thracia, a region of Greece known for its fierce people.

The son of Zeus and Hera, Mars was tall and handsome, but vain, cruel, aggressive and blood-thirsty, personifying the brutal nature of war. He was unpopular with both gods and humans. His sister Eris, the goddess of strife, is his constant cohort, but he is also attended by his sons Deimos and Phobos, as well as Enyo, an old war-goddess.

 

2. The fourth planet from the Sun — sometimes called the "Red Planet" — and the seventh largest in our system, known since prehistoric times and the most favorable place in the Solar System — other than Earth, of course — for human habitation. Mars is a favorite of science fiction writers.
