Myrmekes is a mythical creature in Greek mythology. Their name is Greek for "ants."


Greek sailors that arrived in India have told stories of their encounters with the Myrmekes. They are a race of ants that can range in size from small dogs to giant bears which guarded a hill that had rich deposits of gold. The local tribes had to use a rush and grab maneuver to obtain the gold without being killed by the Myrmekes.
