In Greek mythology, Niobe was the daughter of Tantalus, who was the son of Zeus. If we look in the periodic table, we can find her element, niobium, just above tantalum (but the element just below tantalum is not named zeusium, it is dubnium).

Can you find more elements in the periodic table named after Greek mythological characters?
