Ancient Greek Mythology
8th century BC, ancient Greek, composed (reputedly) at the base of Mount Helicon, Boeotia, Greece.
The Titans on Mount Othrys and the gods on Mount Olympus fought together for ten long years.
Uranus tied up his three sons Kottos, Gyes and Briareus, the hundred-handed ones, and set them in the underworld to live there, at the furthest reaches of the Earth. But Zeus and all the other children of Chronos, upon the advice of Gaia, removed them from the afterlife and set them in the glare of the sun. For the children of Chronos were fighting a war against the Titans, and Gaia predicted victory for Zeus if he removed the presence of these three from the underworld, that is, from the afterlife.
[The Titans were brothers to Kottos, Gyes and Briareus. Atlas was a Titan. Prometheus was a Titan. They were giants. And as Zeus’s uncles, they represented the old generation, the old gods, whom Zeus was fighting against.]
