(continued from page six)

Paeon - In Greek mythology he was a physician to the gods, who heals, for example, the major Olympians Hades and Ares. The name has also come to be used also in the more general sense of deliverer from any evil or calamity. Paeon Skin Care, a Korean cosmetics company, claims that "In Greek mythology, Paeon created a special elixir to heal the Gods. Now, Paeon brings the healing experience to your skin, with its pure, clear formula." The popular web design program WordPress offers the Paeon Medical WordPress Theme for sale to their customers.

Paidia
- She is the female personification of Play who occurs as an attendant of the goddess  Aphrodite in ancient Athenian vase painting. The Paidia Company is "a themed entertainment venue design, development, and management company." Paidia International Development "is a not-for-profit organization that works to help strengthen the Palestinian community through educational, social and leadership development programs aimed at youth and young adults."

Pallas
- A surname of the goddess Athena. Plato derives the surname from pallein, to brandish, in reference to the goddess brandishing the spear or aegis, whereas Apollodorus derives it from the Giant Pallas, who was slain by Athena. But it is more probable that Pallas is the same word as pallax, i. e. a virgin or maiden. Today we have Pallas Watches, Pallas Shoes, Pallas Asteroid, and even a Pallas Progressive Rock Band!

Panacea
 - The goddess of healing and cures, in the form of medicines, salves and curatives. She was the daughter of Asclepius and Epione, and her sisters were Hygeia (Good Health), Iaso (Remedy) and Aceso (Healing). Her name translates to 'all healing", and her temple was at Oropus. PANACEA BIOTEC is an Indian research based pharmaceutical and health management company. The PANACEA CHARITABLE TRUST and Museum offers a collection of healing related services.

Pandora - The first woman in Greek mythology, whose name means "all-gifted"; Pandora Jewelry sells quality gift merchandise. Pandora Game Console and Pandora Press are two more examples.

Parthenon - The temple of Athena, built on the Acropolis of Athens; perhaps the most-used name for any Greek restaurant in any city of the world! It's ridiculous...I bet there's a Parthenon Restaurant in your town! :)

Pegasus - Winged horse that was born from Medusa's head when she was killed; Pegasus Expedite Company is a national delivery/courier service; Pegasus Satellite Systems is a provider of satellite entertainment services.

Poseidon - God of the Sea and brother of Zeus; Poseidon Travel is a common travel agency name; Poseidon Seafood is a national brand of seafood products. Neptune, the Roman version, is often also used by companies, as in Neptune Fresh Lobster Co.

Prometheus - The Titan who stole fire from Olympus and whom Zeus sentenced to be chained to a rock and daily an eagle would feast on his liver. Prometheus CompanyPrometheus BooksPrometheus Real Estate, the list goes on...
