Ambrosia “Nectar of the gods”
- Greek myth ambrosia “immortality” is the food or drink of the Greek gods
- Gives immortality to whomever consumes it
- Brought to the gods in Olympus by doves
- Ambrosia is sometimes depicted in ancient art as distributed by a nymph
- Consumption of ambrosia was reserved for divine beings.
- Heracles was given ambrosia by Athena, while the hero Tydeus is denied the same thing when the goddess discovers him eating human brains.
- Those who consume ambrosia typically had not blood in their veins, but ichor
- Both nectar and ambrosia are fragrant, and may be used as perfume: in the Odyssey Menelaus and his men are disguised as seals in untanned seal skins,
- “and the deadly smell of the seal skins vexed us sore; but the goddess saved us; she brought ambrosia and put it under our nostrils. Homer speaks of ambrosial raiment, ambrosial locks of hair, even the gods’ ambrosial sandals.”
