Τιτυός). Son of Gaea, or of Zeus and Elara, the daughter of Orchomenus. He was a giant in Euboea. Instigated by Heré, he attempted to offer violence to Artemis when she passed through Panopaeus to Pytho, but he was killed by the arrows either of Artemis or Apollo; according to others, Zeus destroyed him with a flash of lightning. He was then cast into Tartarus, and there he lay outstretched on the ground, covering nine acres, while two vultures (others say snakes) devoured his liver. See Gigantes.
