Ephialtes (Gigantes)

EPHIALTES:1)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giants_(Greek_mythology). (probably different from the Aload Giant who was also named Ephialtes):2)Gantz, 450–451. According to Apollodorus he was blinded by arrows from Apollo and Heracles.3)Apollodorus, 1.6.2.

He is named on three Attic black-figure pots (Akropolis 2134, Getty 81.AE.211, Louvre E732) dating from the second quarter of the sixth century BC.4)Gantz, p. 451; Akropolis 2134 (Beazley Archive 9922, LIMC Gigantes 106); Getty 81.AE.211 (Beazley Archive 10047, LIMC Gigantes 171); Louvre E732 (Beazley Archive 14590, LIMC Gigantes 170). On Louvre E732, he is, along with Hyperbios and Agasthenes, opposed by Zeus, while on Getty 81.AE.211, his opponents are apparently Apollo and Artemis.5)Moore 1985, p. 34.

He is also named on the late sixth century BC Siphnian Treasury,6)Gantz, pp. 451–452; Brinkmann, N7 p. 94; LIMC Gigantes 2. where he is probably one of the opponents of Apollo and Artemis, and probably as well on what might be the earliest representation of the Gigantomachy, a pinax fragment from Eleusis (Eleusis 349).7)Schefold, p. 52, Beazley Archive 1409; Gantz p. 450 notes that the pinax might represent Ares encounter with the Aloadae in Iliad 5.

He is also named on a late fifth century BC cup from Vulci (Berlin F2531), shown battling Apollo.8)Beazley Archive 220533: detail showing Ephialtes with shield and spear v. Apollo with sword and bow; Cook,p. 56, Plate VI. Although the usual opponent of Poseidon among the Giants is Polybotes, one early fifth century red-figure column krater (Vienna 688) has Poseidon attacking Ephialtes.9)Beazley Archive 202916; LIMC Gigantes 361; Cook, pp. 14–18, p. 17 fig. 5.


Ephialtes:10)http://greekmythology.wikia.com/wiki/Ephialtes_(Gigantes).  -Apollo and Herakles shot its eyes out with arrows (Ἐφιάλτης) (sometimes known as Udaeus) was one of the 100 Gigantes created to overthrow the Olympians by storming Olympus. Ephialtes was slain by the combined efforts of Herakles and Apollo. Each shot an arrow in to the eye of Ephialtes. Under normal circumstances it would take only one to kill a monster like Ephialtes but because when Gaia bore them she made it so nearly all had to be killed by a god and a hero, hence the need for both to shoot Ephialtes.
