Ἄτλας (Átlas)[1]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Greek_mythological_figures (Other Titans) Titan forced to carry the heavens upon his shoulders by Zeus. Also Son of Iapetus.


In Greek mythology, Atlas (/ˈætləs/; Ancient Greek: Ἄτλας) was the Titan god of endurance and astronomy,[1] condemned to hold up the sky for eternity after the Titanomachy. Although associated with various places, he became commonly identified with the Atlas Mountains in northwest Africa (modern-day Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia).[2] Atlas was the son of the Titan Iapetus and the Oceanid Asia[3] or Clymene.[4] He had many children, mostly daughters, the Hesperides, the Hyades, the Pleiades, and the nymph Calypso who lived on the island Ogygia.[5] According to the ancient Greek poet Hesiod Atlas stood at the ends of the earth towards the west.[6]

In contexts where a Titan and a Titaness are assigned each of the seven planetary powers, Atlas is paired with Phoebe and governs the moon.[not in citation given][7]

Hyginus emphasises the primordial nature of Atlas by making him the son of Aether and Gaia.[8]

Atlantic Ocean” means “Sea of Atlas”, while “Atlantis” means “island of Atlas”.
