prometheus

The son of Iapetus (one of the titans) and Clymene, fabled by the poets to have surpassed all mankind in knowledge, and to have formed men of clay to whom he gave life by means of fire stolen from heaven. Jupiter, being angry at this, sent mercury to bind Prometheus to mount Caucasus, where a vulture preyed upon his liver.

Origin: L, fr. Gr, from to have forethought for.
