Great one! I would have nominated it with pleasure, but you would need to remove one answer for that, I guess.

Difficult, but at least I found all the ones located in France, so that's fine for me.

Edit: The quiz wasn't nominable when I took it a few days ago but now is, although it still has 100 answers. I don't really understand the situation, but at least I can nominate it. ;-)

Thanks I really appreciate it!

The quiz couldn't be nominated due to having too many characters in the caveats and description (stupid rule).

It is quite difficult but I think that's because mythology as a topic is not very well known.

Have a nice day :)

Great quiz!

For some reason we can't mouse over the Greek icons at the end to reveal the names. Maybe there's something in the way, like the fill of the black border?

Thanks for making this, it's definitely a stumper.

It's pretty widely agreed that the capital of Greece is not actually named for the goddess, but the other way around!
