Prometheus Myth

By; Ashley Morgan & Srav Gunnabathula

The Rebellion

Prometheus was the titan God who had the task of molding man out of clay. His desire to better the lives of man kind caused a huge conflict between him & Zeus. He first tricked Zeus out getting the better parts of animal meats for feasting so that man could have them. Then he stole fire from Zeus, hiding it inside a fennel-stalk and delivered it to man.

The Punishment

As punishment for these acts, Zeus ordered the creation of Pandora in order to deliver bad luck unto man. Prometheus was arrested and bound to a stake on Mount Kaukasos where an eagle was set to feed upon his ever-regenerating liver. Generations later the hero Herakles came along and released Prometheus from his torture.
