Ceyx and Alcyone


In Latin IV/V at Head-Royce School Upper School, Latin students are required to make an informative website that is based around a story from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. For my story, I chose “Ceyx and Alcyone,” a story about a loving couple that is separated by death after Ceyx, the husband, is killed in horrible storm at sea. For my project, I chose lines 474 to 515 because this was the most interesting part to me––the demise of the ship. With the help of Dr. Liswoski and some online resources, I am proud to present you my site.


Welcome to My Ovid Project Site!

Here you can see some Renaissance depictions of the violent storm with the ship capsizing (artists unknown).
