PROMETHEUS was one of the TITANS who was given the task of creating
by Zeus. He felt great compassion for his creations and stole fire from
heaven and cheated the gods in the apportionments of the sacrifice to aide
them. This incurred the wrath of Zeus who had him chained to Mount Caucasus
and sent the gigantic Kaukasian Eagle to feed on his ever-regenerating
liver. Many generations later Herakles freed him from this torture.
