Tityas

In Greek mythology, Tityas (also spelled Tityus) was a giant, the son of Elara, one of Zeus' lovers. He hid her from his wife, Hera, by placing her deep beneath the earth. This was where she gave birth to Tityas, who is sometimes said to be the son of Elara and Gaia, the earth goddess, for this reason.
