Greeks were not inventors of medicine, math, science and politics, but inheritors from much older Egyptians.

For days he wandered, searching for the gorgons lair. The universities and key media usually sided with the abstract camp and derided anyone working in any realistic art media declaring boldly that realistic art was not "real" art. The Prince's protestations of innocence are unavailing against the King's unreasoning anger, and his oath prevents his speaking the whole truth. Mythologies are commonly complex and evocative, rather than coldly logical.
