    I am doing a project on Zeus the greek god. My question is: How old would Zeus be? I can't find it on the internet anywhere!!! It only needs to a estimate. Thanks for any help.

    He was a myth but the theory was that he was born 700 BC.

    Minoan society in Crete is around the 2000 BC mark, Zeus was already around then. The 'pre-Greek' cultures who became this society were around the 7000 BC mark. The gods that eventually were joined together to form Zeus were around then. Helladic civilization, the earliest considered to be 'Greek', was around 2800 BC.

    The closest you are going to get to a 'correct' answer is:

    Like all gods, Zeus is exactly one day older than the universe itself.
