(Greek Deity) MOMUS

Also known as MOMOS
Greek God of : Mockery, Scoff and Unfair Criticism. The Patron of Writers and Poets
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Momus is the Greek God of mockery, faultfinding, scoff and unfair criticism. He is also the patron of writers and poets which is quite ironic.

The son of Nyx and a mystery father found fault with the man that Hephaestus made for not having little doors in his chest so all and sundry could see his secret thoughts. He criticized Aphrodite too, for talking too much and because her sandals creaked. Women just don't like criticism so it's a bit of a suprise that she didn't throw a screaming ab-dab and instead just calmly slipped off her toga.

Momus was completely gobsmacked! Stood staring at Aphrodite's naked loveliness, Momus couldn't find a single fault. She had a perfect body.

The constant mocking and criticism of the gods would prove to be his downfall as he was booted from Mount Olympus. Let that be a lesson to you.
