Summary The myth of Baucis and Philemon starts with Jupiter and Mercury becoming bored with their home on Mt. Olympus. They disguise themselves as beggars and go down to a village nestled in the Phrygian hill- country. They go from door to door asking for food and shelter, but every house turns them away. After being turned away from hundreds of houses they came upon a humble home of an old couple.
An old lady answered the door and told them to come in. The old man and women inside gave them food and drink. The gods then flooded the village, only sparing Baucis and Philemon, a huge lake surrounded their house. Zeus then told them that they had been hosts to gods and that they were very grateful. Zeus then said that they had one wish, they asked that neither of them have to ever live alone, so will they die together. They also asked to be priests to them, and when they died they turned into two trees intertwined into one trunk.
