1581）. Because Tityus was brought up under the earth, he was said to be
earth-born （ghgenh/s, Scholiast on Ap.

the command of Zeus, because Apollo had slain the sons of Brontes, of Steropes, and of
Arges. He slew them out of spite at Zeus,
because Zeus slew his son Aesculapius with a thunderbolt at Pytho; for by his remedies Aesculapius raised the dead.”
But Zeus would have hurled him to Tartarus; however, at the intercession of
Latona he ordered him to serve as a thrall to a
