Prometheus


Though he was born of the Titan Iapetus by Clymene or Themis, Prometheus foresaw the defeat of the Titans by the Olympian Gods so he allied himself with Zeus. Yet Prometheus eventually angered Zeus by stealing fire and bringing it to mankind. As punishment, Zeus gave Pandora (and, with her, all the evils of the world) to man, and condemned Prometheus to be chained to a rock in the Caucasus Mountains, where his liver was eaten daily by an eagle. According to some versions of the story, Prometheus was eventually freed by Hercules.
