Menoetius (Chthonic Deity & Titan) of violent anger, rash action, & human mortality

Menoetius was a Titan god, son of Titans Iapetus and Clymene, and brother of Atlas, Prometheus and Epimetheus. His name derives from the Ancient Greek words “menos” (might) and “oitos” (doom), meaning “doomed might”. Based on the descriptions of various resources, he may have been the Titan of violent anger, rash action, and human mortality, and he often committed hubris, having superfluous pride. During the Titanomachy, Zeus killed Menoetius and banished him to Tartarus.

Menoetius Is also called Menoitios.

Menoetius or Menoetes (/məˈnʃiəs/; Greek: Μενοίτιος, Μενοίτης Menoitios), meaning doomed might, is a name that refers to three distinct beings from Greek mythology.

A son of Iapetus and Clymene or Asia, and a brother of Atlas, Prometheus and Epimetheus, Menoetius was killed by Zeus with a flash of lightning in the War of the Titans, and banished to Tartarus.[1][2][3] His name means “doomed might,” deriving from the Ancient Greek words menos (“might, power”) and oitos (“doom, pain”). Hesiod described Menoetius as hubristic, meaning exceedingly prideful and impetuous to the very end. From what his name suggests, along with Hesiod’s own account, Menoetius was perhaps the Titan god of violent anger and rash action.[4]
