      From what I've found out, the Greeks took dreams very seriously b/c they saw them as messages from the Gods. Some Greek generals would take dream interpreters on the battlefield to interpret their dreams and deside if it would be a good idea to attack or surrender. I hope this is some help to you, good luck!

      Maybe research the Oracle of Delphi? Might find something there. There was a great article in Scientific America on it a few months ago.

      Morpheus - God of Dreams[/b]
      Morpheus (sometimes incorrectly spelt "Morpeheus") was the chief shaper of dreams (his name means "he who shapes"). He was assisted by his brothers. Icelus assisted with those aspects of dreams that reflected reality, Phobetor made fearsome dreams (hence "phobia") whilst Phantasus produced tricky and unreal dreams (hence "fantasy", "phantasmagoria", etc).
      Ovid suggests that Morpheus had a special talent for mimicking human form in dreams. According to Ovid, Morpheus concentrated on the human elements of dreams, his brothers Phobetor and Phantasos being responsible for animals and inanimate objects respectively.

      Morpheus also had special responsiblity for the dreams of kings and heroes. For these reasons Morpheus is often referred to as "Morpheus the Greek god of dreams" in superiority to his brothers.

      Morpheus himself was said to sleep in a dark cave decorated with poppy flowers. This is perhaps a reference to the opium poppy; morphine was named after Morpheus (initially morphine was called "morphium").
