Greek Mythology

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

PALLAS

Greek War God

The winged husband of Styx

One of the second generation Titans, he is married to Styx and is the father of various victory-seeking deities such as Nike. Possibly also (if the rumors are true) Eos.

Some legends claim that he’s the father of Athena, possibly because of her nickname PALLAS-ATHENA. He attempted to rape her but she skinned him — and used his skin to cover her shield. She found that his wings, once attached to her feet, came in very useful for those Business Class Air Travels.

Note: Pallas is quite a common name in Greek mythology. Apparently it was the ancient world’s equivalent of Joe. To avoid confusion, see also Pallas, Pallas (3), Pallas (4) and Pallas (5).
