Porphyrion (Gigantes)

PORPHYRION:[1]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giants_(Greek_mythology). According to Apollodorus, he was (along with Alcyoneus), the greatest of the Giants, he attacked Heracles and Hera but Zeus “smote him with a thunderbolt, and Hercules shot him dead with an arrow.”[2]Apollodorus, 1.6.2. Compare with Aristophanes, The Birds 1249 ff.: “a single Porphyrion gave him [Zeus] enough to do.” According to Pindar, who calls him “king of the Giants”, he was slain by an arrow from the bow of Apollo.[3]Pindar, Pythian 8.12–18. He is named on a late fifth century BC cup from Vulci (Berlin F2531), where he is battling with Zeus.[4]Beazley Archive 220533: detail showing Zeus v. Porphyrion; Cook, p. 56, Plate VI. He was also probably named on the late sixth century BC Siphnian Treasury.[5]Brinkmann, N22 p.103, which finds traces of “rion”; Stewart, plate 196.

Porphyrion:[6]http://www.greekmythology.com/Myths/Gigantes/Porphyrion/porphyrion.html was one of the Gigantes in Greek mythology, the sons of the Titans Uranus and Gaea that sprang out when Uranus was castrated by his son Cronus and the blood fell on the earth. He was considered the mightiest of all the Gigantes. During the Gigantomachy, the battle that took place between the Gigantes and the Olympian Gods, Porphyrion stood against Heracles and Hera. During their fight, Zeus put a spell on Porphyrion, making him fall in love with Hera, whom he tried to rape. At that point, Zeus threw a thunderbolt against him, while Heracles provided the finishing blow with an arrow.

Porphyrion:[7]http://greekmythology.wikia.com/wiki/Porphyrion (also known as (Eurymedon) (Πορφυριων or Ευρυμεδων) – Zeus-The King of the Gigantes who attempted to rape Hera in the war against the gods. Zeus struck him down with a thunderbolt and Herakles with an arrow. Porphyrion: (Πορφυριων) was one of the Gigantes, son of Gaia and Tartaros, born to oppose Zeus. In the Gigantomakhia, Porphyrion climbed Olympus, and attacked Hera, but Eros charmed him to fall in love with Hera. Porphyrion was distracted by his sudden love towards the goddess, and was easily killed by the arrows of Heracles and the lightnings of Zeus.

Parents: Gaia & Tartaros
