The Pig is a herdable animal in Age of Mythology. It provides 300 food when fully fattened, and contains 100 when obtained. They are found wild mainly in Greek maps.

If the Greeks worship Aphrodite in the Heroic Age, they will gain access to the Curse God Power, which will turn the weakest members of an enemy group of soldiers into pigs.

In the Fall of the Trident campaign, Arkantos and Ajax stop on an island and meet Odysseus and his men, all transformed into pigs by the sorceress Circe.

History Edit

Herdable Edit

"Scientific name -- Sus scrofa
Size -- Up to 500 lbs.
Diet -- omnivorous on roots, fruit and seeds, but also small vertebrates and invertebrates

Domestic pigs were bred from the wild boar in ancient Mesopotamia. Like goats, pigs were popular and common in agriculture because they can forage on their own and are not picky about their diets. Pigs, in fact, may be more cosmopolitan than goats since they can eat meat, spoiled food, and otherwise act as garbage disposals. Some ancient societies had prohibitions against eating pigs, that may be related to trichinosis and other diseases that come from pork. Herodotus indicates that at least upper-class Egyptians considered pork to be unclean. Nevertheless, there is ample evidence that even in ancient Egypt, pig farming was a major industry. Inscriptions indicate that the mayor of el-Kab owned a herd of 1500 pigs. And the temples at Memphis and Abydos held large herds of swine on their premises.
