Epimetheus


Epimetheus, afterthought, was a minor creator god found in both the Greek and Roman pantheons, one of the four sons of Iapetos and Klymene (Titan)), and the brother of Prometheus; jointly responsible for the creation of humankind. Epimetheus' fame involves his lisison with the first mortal woman, Pandora, whom the gods warned him against. Her curiosity caused her to open a box belonging to Jupiter in which he placed all vices, diseases, and sufferings of humanity, plus the benevolent spirit of hope. A.G.H.
