mythology alphabet: z - zagreus [(Greek: Ζαγρεύς) ] - the obscure and ancient figure of Zagreus was identified with the god Dionysus.
A single early appearance of Zagreus is in a quoted line from the lost epic Alkmeonis, written in the sixth century BC if not earlier: “Mistress Earth and Zagreus who art above all other gods.” The Ionian word zagre signifies a "pit for the capture of live animals"
history: According to the followers of Orphism, Zeus had lain with Persephone — who, by the tradition ascribed to Orpheus, was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter — in the form of a serpent. The result of their union was Zagreus. Zeus had intended Zagreus to be his heir, but a jealous Hera persuaded the Titans to kill the child. Like the infant Zeus in Cretan myth, the child Zagreus was entrusted to the Titans who distracted him with toys. While he gazed into a mirror they tried to seize him and he fled, changing into various animal forms in his attempt to escape. Finally he took the form of a bull, and in that form they caught him, tore him to pieces, and devoured him. […] Zeus implanted the still-beating heart into the mortal woman Semele, from whom the child was eventually born again, despite Hera’s intervention. Some accounts say that he was reassembled and resurrected by Demeter; others, that Zeus fed his heart to Semele in a drink, making her pregnant with Dionysus.
(1/4) Titans » Prometheus
Prometheus (/prəˈmiːθiːəs/; Greek: Προμηθεύς, pronounced [promɛːtʰeús], meaning “forethought”)is a Titan who sided with Zeus and the ascending Olympian gods in the vast cosmological struggle against Cronus and the other Titans in Greek mythology. Prometheus was therefore on the conquering side of the cataclysmic war of the Greek gods, called the “Titanomachia”, where Zeus and the Olympian gods ultimately defeated Cronos and the other Titans.
