Hephaestus

Hephaestuswas the Greek god of blacksmiths, sculptors, metallurgy, fire and volcanoes; thus, he is symbolised with a hammer, an anvil and a pair of tongs.

According to Homer's epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey, he was the son of ZeusandHera. However, Hesiod informs us that HeraboreHephaestusalone. According to an account, afterHephaestuswas born,Herathrew him from Olympus because he was crippled; he fell into the ocean and was raised byThetisandEurynome. Another myth has it that he once tried to protect his mother fromZeus' advances and as a result, the father of the Gods flung him down from Olympus, which caused his physical disability; he fell on the island of Lemnos where he became a master craftsman. He was later accepted back to Olympus, and became the craftsman of the gods, creating majestic armors, shields and weapons.

He was married toAphrodite; after he learned his wife had an affair with her brother,Ares, he devised a plan with which he humiliated both lovers to theother gods.

Hephaestus Is also called Vulcan.

ATHENA The Goddess of War and Wisdom fought off an attempted rape by the god Hephaistos, shortly after his divorce from Aphrodite. She wiped his fluids form her leg and threw them upon the earth (Gaia) which conceived and bore a son Erikhthonios. Athena felt a certain responsibility for this child and raised it as her own in the temple of the Akropolis.
