Lucian's Dialogues Volume 4: Zeus the Tragedian

LUCIAN OF SAMOSATA (c. 125 - c. 180), translated by Howard WILLIAMS (1837 - 1931)

Zeus, gloomy and in tragic distress, is implored by Hermes and Athena to divulge the cause of his melancholy condition; while Hera, true to her Homeric character, confidently attributes it to another earthly amour. The king of gods and men, thus adjured, announced the true reason of his anxiety--daring assaults upon the character of himself and the rest of the Olympian divinities, and, in fact, denial of their very existence by the skeptics. What would be the best course to pursue? Summary by Foon
