Greek Myth XLIV: Pseudo-Apollodorus’s Bibliotheca Book III, Chapter III – Glaucus, or Who Knew Honey Was So Dangerous?!?

Glaucus dies. But don’t be nervous. It will all be all right in the end.

Discussion Prompts

  1. Why do you think the color-changing cow is important? Why do you think that is the test for identifying the person who will save Glaucus?
  2. Spit-swapping. Discuss.
  3. Are there other myths or legends that involve drowning in honey? If you know one, please share!
  4. AP Credit: What does this story have to say about fate and prophecy?

I have a BA in History and Classical Civilization from Loyola University Chicago and an MPH from Western Michigan University. I've been a geometry teacher, a religion teacher, a writing tutor. I'm a writer, a knitter, a dancer, a singer, an actor. And, yes, for fun I like to reread everything that was assigned while getting my classics degree.
