For example, I would put Pandora and Prometheus and Zeus together.
And here’s my connection: Zeus and humanit--
· Prometheus made the first man from clay, and then he stole fire from Zeus so men could keep themselves warm, cook, etc.
· Zeus was furious about this theft of “gods-only” property, so he punished Prometheus by chaining him to a rock, there to have his liver pecked out and eaten every day for eternity.
· Zeus also punished men by created Pandora, the first woman.
Here’s another one: women who receive the vengeance of the gods—
Medusa—punished by Athena after Poseidon had sex with her.
Metis—eaten by Zeus to avoid the prophecy that her offspring would overthrow him
Atalanta—turned into a lion by Aphrodite (or Zeus) when she and her husband defiled the temple
