A particular kind of PeriodPiece set in ancient biblical or mythological times, running the gamut from HeroicFantasy to HistoricalFiction.

Alternatively, it may be used to describe FantasyCounterpartCulture equivalents in a secondary world. The subgenre of low-budget SwordAndSandal Italian films of the 50s and 60s is the ''Peplum''.

A [[IncrediblyLamePun classic]] CyclicTrope, as Hollywood has regular periods of fascination with the era, and the trope was named by an early period of such films being popular. Movies set in TheTimeOfLegends built a Golden Age of Myth, as they were especially popular during UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfHollywood.
