WEFOUNDPrometheus! Someone to Nosh On


In Greek mythology , Prometheus ( / p r ə ˈ m iː θ iː ə s / ; Greek : Προμηθεύς , pronounced  [promɛːtʰeús] , meaning "forethought") [1] is a Titan , culture hero , and trickster figure who is credited with the creation of man from clay , and who defies the gods by stealing fire and giving it to humanity , an act that enabled progress and civilization. Prometheus is known for his intelligence and as a champion of mankind. [2]

The punishment of Prometheus as a consequence of the theft is a major theme of his mythology, and is a popular subject of both ancient and modern art. Zeus , king of the Olympian gods , sentenced the Titan to eternal torment for his transgression. The immortal Prometheus was bound to a rock, where each day an eagle , the emblem of Zeus, was sent to feed on his liver , which would then grow back to be eaten again the next day. (In ancient Greece, the liver was thought to be the seat of human emotions.) [3] In some stories, Prometheus is freed at last by the hero Heracles ( Hercules ).

In another of his myths, Prometheus establishes the form of animal sacrifice practiced in ancient Greek religion . Evidence of a cult to Prometheus himself is not widespread. He was a focus of religious activity mainly at Athens , where he was linked to Athena and Hephaestus , other Greek deities of creative skills and technology. [4]

Prometheus is the Titan of crafty counsel and forethought. He is known for giving humans the gift of fire. He is the son of Iapetus and Clymene, and the brother-in-law of Pandora .

Prometheus was the Titan of Forethought and Crafty Counsel, and a part of the second generation of Titans. He was born to Iapetus (the Titan of the West) and Clymene (an Oceanid). Prometheus was also the younger brother of Atlas (the Titan of Endurance and Strength), the twin brother of Epimetheus (the Titan of Afterthought), and the elder brother of Menoetius (the Titan of Betrayal).

Unlike his brutal elder brother and careless twin brother, Prometheus was very sophisticated, and almost as intelligent as Kronos himself. During the "Golden Age", Prometheus made mankind out of clay, molding them after the Titans, but made them much smaller in size. Like most other Titans, Prometheus rarely visited his uncle Kronos on Mount Othrys, claiming to be too busy. Kronos, however, knew that the actual reason was Prometheus' secret fear of his uncle's might and infamous temper.
