Some of these aren't mythology but history. Also you should add Spartacus and make it mythology/ancient history.

Should Spartacus count? The story happens during Roman history, and I understand he was of Thracian,origin, not Greek.


Il Primo Re seems to be about Romulus and Remus, that is Roman mythology rather than Greek.

Cleopatra may be related to the ptolemaic dynasty, but she was born in Alexandria and pretty much everyone would relate her to Egypt or Rome, but not to Greek history or mythology.


FYC:

Antigoni (1961)
Ifigeneia (1977)
Perseo l'Invincibile (1963)
Orpheus & Eurydice (2000)
Atlantis: The Lost Continent (1961)

But Mars is a Roman God, his Greek equivalent was Ares, they share some traits but also differences. Specially on how they were portrayed.

I agree Cleopatra would fit better in a poll about Egypt.
