Template:Cleanup-reorganize The Heroic Age (Ηρωική Εποχή ή Γένος των Ηρώων) in Greek mythological history is defined as the period between the coming of the Greeks to Thessaly and the Greek return from Troy.[1] It was demarcated as one of the five Ages of Man by Hesiod.Template:Citation needed The period spans roughly six generations; the heroes denoted by the term are superhuman, though not divine, and are celebrated in the literature of Homer.[1]
