At some time, where men from Turkey considered to be 'the most handsome'? Are there comparisons to the gods of Indian or Asian folk-lore about how a handsome man will resemble (this god)?
I've googled a little, 'myth legend most handsome man men' and variations, but mostly I get either Greek gods, or stuff about Hollywood.
I did find *one* reference here: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:ZEoO_4pf2-QJ:www.sacred-texts.com/neu/eng/hml/hml13.htm+myths+legends+most+handsome+men+man&cd=10&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a
(sorry, cached so i could find the word)
It's about Cuchulain of Ireland. Anything along these lines would be good....
"Yet a third chariot comes, wherein stands a dark, sad youth, most handsome of all the men of Erin; he wears a crimson tunic, brooched with gold, a long white linen cloak, and a white, gold-embroidered hood. His hair is black, his look draws love, his glance shoots fire, and the hero-light gleams around him. His shield is crimson, with a silver rim, and images of beasts shine on it in gold."
Terror in Connaught
"Alas I that is the hero Cuchulain," said Meave.
Even better word-strings for Google would be good. Thanks! And so very sorry, mods, i have *no* clue what tags to use.
