Beasts of Myth & Fable #4

Here's a small hint: This one's got a name, not just a species.

Prayers to the Roman Gods: The Gratiae

If there's anyone who likes parties more than these three, it's... well, actually, Bacchus probably qualifies.  But their parties are better, 'cause you'll remember the party in the morning.

The Seven Wonders: The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus

Isn't one of the Seventy Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries "Always loot the ruins"? No? Just the Crusader's Oath, then? Well, alright.

Beasts of Myth and Fable #3

This was a fun one to do. Lovely mirroring in the first two verses - and I daresay it's an easy one for the Classics fandom, given how often I see posts about it.

The Seven Wonders: The Colossus of Rhodes

Ah, Rhodes.  Beautiful city, but don't look up as you sail into the harbour - gods have no need of pants, you know.
