Abstract : Greco-Roman myths Ancient people’s beliefs and mental conceptions. Thus, theanalysis of myths seems to be an area of work at once pertinent to analyzing thelinks between Seeing and Knowing, and innovative because this approach to theways of thinking in Antiquity permits one to broach an aspect of the Greek man thathas been studied little until now. Twenty myths and their variants, forming a bodyof more than a hundred texts, gathered from around thirty authors, constitute thebeginning of an investigation on the role of sight in knowledge, approached fromdifferent angles : What could be seen of divinity ? What was forbidden ? How didmyths convey the values of the Ancients ? To what extent did they participate in theformation of the Greek man ? The whole answers the main objective consisting ofbetter grasping Ancient people’s mental conceptions to understand them better
