Enceladus: the silent giant who sighs through his grave

According to Greek mythology, Enceladus – son of Tartarus and Earth – was the leader of the Titans and fell dead in the Battle of the Giants.

According to one version, he was killed by lightning from Zeus, while another version states that he was killed by Athena, who threw against him Sicily or Mount Etna, with which she seduced him.

The result is that Enceladus now sighs in his grave, causing volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. According to the ancient Greeks, Enceladus was the god who caused the earthquakes and that is why even today we often call the earthquake “Enceladus”.
