For some problems with such a definition of myth, and indeed with all other definitions then available, see G. S. Kirk, Myth: Its Meaning and Function in Ancient and Other Cultures (Sather Classical Lectures, 1970; University of California Press, 1972). This book also contains the only real test of Jung's notion of archetypes known to me, against the contents of the Greek myths, which ought to be an especially favorable instance; it fails.
