Teaching Greek mythic warrior women not purely imaginary

Greek mythic warrior women not purely imaginary

In Greek myths, Amazons were fierce warrior women from faraway lands in the East. They were as courageous and skilled in battle as the mightiest Greek heroes. They appear in several legends and stories, including the legend of the Trojan War. They are also mentioned in the chronicles of Athens, one of the greatest of the Greek city-states.
