 Greek mythology, ancient greek myths. Greek gods and heroes.
In the modern language, the word "myth" and "mythology" is synonymous with a fiction or a lie.
To make matters worse, all greek mythology came to us written in ancient greek (of course!) so translating to English or any other language was not an easy task.
No matter what the variations are of each story the bottom line is that the ancient Greeks had a brilliant imagination and created one of the richest and most complete set of characters: gods, demigods and heroes and passed them on to us to appreciate their brilliance millennia later.

 Mythology in Ancient Egypt
Egyptian mythology or Egyptian religion is the succession of tentative beliefs held by the people of Egypt for over three thousand years, prior to major exposure to Christianity and Islam.
Since the annual flooding of the Nile brought with it silt and clay, and its water brought life to its surrounds, he was thought to be the creator of human children, which he made at a potter's wheel, from clay, and places them in their mothers' uteruses.
By looking at the mythology of Set from a modern perspective it is very easy to cast Set in the role of arch villain and source of evil, especially if one only looks at the mythology surrounding Set's relationship with Osiris.

 MovieFreak.com - "The X-Files Mythology - Black Oil" DVD Review
The mythology continues with seven more episodes for the season, beginning with two highly enjoyable two-part episodes, Tunguska and Terma follow Mulder and Krycek to Russia where Mulder is subjected to a close encounter with the fl oil and Krycek reveals his true alliance.
The three commentaries were newly recorded for this set, and that’s great, however Fox made the mistake of leaving out the interesting commentary on Apocrypha by Chris Carter and Kim Manners that is available on the Season 3 set.
The whole truth is inside the season sets, of course, which by the way are highly recommended (again only seasons 1-6 are actually worth their individual $90 price tags).

 Amazon.com: The X-Files Mythology, Vol. 1 - Abduction: DVD: X-Files Mythology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The X-Files Mythology series consists of collections of episodes grouped around certain themes that were central to Chris Carter's gripping, funny, and sometimes impenetrable sci-fi/suspense/horror series.
Because the Mythology episodes were scattered amongst the "Monster of the Week" episodes, it could be hard to follow the story chain; obviously this approach addresses that challenge.
This is the episode that introduces two major mythology characters: Krycek and X. It has a wonderful scene where we meet X for the first time and it establishes Krycek's connection with the CSM (although this becomes easily apperent in Ascension).
