What does the puzzle below represent, and what four-letter word corresponds to the missing image?

Eleven/twelve images with one letter attached to each, blank box with question mark


1 Answer 1


The puzzle represents

the Twelve Olympians

Each image

contains a symbol representing one of the Greek gods/goddesses along with the first letter of his or her name.

From left to right

Demeter, goddess of harvest
Poseidon, god of the sea
Athena, goddess of war
Aphrodite, goddess of beauty
Hephaestus, god of blacksmiths
Hera, goddess of marriage
Apollo, god of the sun
Hestia, goddess of the family / Dionysus, god of wine, considered by various authors to be one of the Twelve Olympians
Hermes, the messenger god
Ares, god of war
Artemis, goddess of the moon

The missing image and four letter word would then be

Zeus, King of the gods of Mount Olympus!

@Stiv points out that the title

is a reference to Hellas, Latinization of Ἑλλάς, the Ancient Greek word for Greece.
