Bibliotheke (also known as Bibliotheka, Bibliothece, or Bibliotheca) is a work by Pseudo-Apollodoros, a 2nd century (whether B.C. or A.D. debated) author from Ancient Greece. Also known by its translated title as "The Library" or, more specifically, "The Library of Greek Mythology", it is possibly one of the largest compilements of Ancient Greek myth actually written in Ancient Greece. Covered in 3 books and an epitome are the Theogony, the Interactions of the gods, the god-wars, the House of Mykenai, the House of Krete, the House of Thebes, the House of Athens, and the Trojan war and its results. In a way, this is the straight-up best possible introduction to Greek Mythology.
Which is why Books 1-3 and parts 1-3 of the epitome will be made into a comic. By me.
