MYTHOLOGY MEME | [1/4] TITANS
ATLAS is the primordial Titan who holds up the celestial sphere. He is also the titan of astronomy and navigation. Atlas and his brother Menoetius sided with the Titans in their war against the Olympians, the Titanomachy. When the Titans were defeated, many of them (including Menoetius) were confined to Tartarus, but Zeus condemned Atlas to stand at the western edge of Gaia and hold up Uranus on his shoulders, to prevent the two from resuming their primordial embrace.
