Creon Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

There's a whole genus of butterflies called creon, but Creon's always too busy to stop and notice how pretty they are. Also, why are there butterflies called Creon?

Be careful not to get this Creon confused with Creon, the king of Corinth, who got fried by the sorcery of Medea.

Creon was really in to the Green Lantern character named Kreon. Oh, but then Kreon died and came back as a weird zombie looking thing, and Creon was bummed.

Creon appears more than any other character in Sophocles' Oedipus plays. Fancy! (Source.)
