A Giant who was born from the Titan Japetus and Themis according to Aeschylus (525 456 BC). However Hesiod in his work Theogony (c. 750 BC) states that the mother was the Oceanid Nymph Clymene. His siblings were Atlas, Epimetheus and Prometheus. Menoetius together with Atlas fought the Olympian gods but when defeated, Menoetius was condemned to live in Erebus.
