One of the Gigantes of Greco-Roman belief. His name means ‘Cattle Lord’. The Gigantes were Giants that were created from the blood of Uranus when he was castrated. They were already fully mature and were covered in full battle armour. The Gigantes attacked the Olympian gods but they were defeated in the end. He died after being chased by the god of the sea, Poseidon and was buried under an island called Nysirus which was once a rock torn by the god from the island of Cos.
