(Greek Deity) APATE

Also known as
Class : Deity
Greek Goddess of : Lies and Deceipt
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

A very deceiptful Goddess. But how do you know if she's deceiving you or just trying to deceive you into thinking you're being deceived?

Apate's stripy girdle of deceit caused no end of problems when Hera, terrified that Zeus was going to boot her from Olympus and move a mortal in, used it to trick the top god into showing off his morning glory and Semele promptly burst into flames!

Apate has a male counterpart called Dolos, the wiley God of trickery, often hangs around with Pseudologoi, collectively known as 'the lies' and also chipped in with one of the many nasty spirits that escaped from Pandora's box.

She obviously can't be trusted. I'm going to go out on a limb here and advise you to avoid.
