Conway) (Greek lyric C5th B.C.) : "Does not even now great Atlas struggle to bear up the weight of heaven, far from his fathers’ land and his possessions? But almighty Zeus set free the Titanes for as time passes and the breeze abates, the sails are set anew." The Titans were an elder generation of gods who ruled the cosmos before the Olympians gods came to power. The eldest of the Titans--Cronos and his four brothers, Crius, Coeus, Hyperion and Iapetus--were imprisoned in the stormy pit of Tartarus by Zeus after he was victorious in the War. The female Titans or Titanides remained neutral in the War, and retained their positions as prophetic goddesses. ADANUS (Adanos) An alternate name for one of the elder Titan sons of Uranus. ANDES An alternate name for one of the elder Titan sons of Uranus. ANCHIALE (Ankhiale) A younger Titan goddess who perhaps represented the warmth of fire.
