Greek legendary mortal

Mortal who faked an artificial Zeus

Brother of SISYPHUS, he tried to emulate the might of ZEUS by dragging chains to make thunder noises and throwing lighted torches around to simulate lightning.

Extremely irritated by this breach of copyright, ZEUS hit him with a genuine thunderbolt — and then burnt down the city of Salmone as it no longer had a ruler.
