THE STORY OF HOW ALECTRYON BECAME A ROOSTER
Illustrated by the amazing @carysfletcherillustration
Alectryon was a Greek youth ordered to guard the door by Ares, the God of War. This was important because Ares was having an affair with Aphrodite, the Goddess of love, and couldn't risk anyone finding out. Alas! Alectryon fell asleep on his duty and Helios, the God of Sun, walked right in on Ares and Aphrodite. Ares was so furious that he turned Alectryon into a rooster as punishment! Even today, the rooster never fails to announce the arrival of the Sun every morning!
