Atlas

???












Atlas was the son of the Titan Iapetus and the Oceanide Clymene. As punishment for fighting Zeus, he was employed to support the heavens on his shoulders. He collected the apples of the Hesperides for Heracles. Perseus, being inhospitably received by him, turned him into a mountain by means of the head of Medusa which is still known as the Atlas mountains. [p. 45]
