Uranus was the early god of the sky heavens,
and Gaea's husband. He was horrified by the
hideousness of his offspring with Gaea
Titan, in Greek religion and mythology, one of
12 primeval deities. The female Titan is also
called Titaness. The Titans—six sons and six
daughters—were the children of Uranus and
Gaea. They were Kronos, Iapetus,
Hyperion, Oceanus, Coeus, Creus, Theia, Rhea,
Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Tethys, and Themis.

The large overfold in the front of the body was
called asinus, and part of the material under
this was pulled up and draped over the sinus
to form the umbo. The back of the toga was
pulled over the head for religious ceremonies,
as in this statueof Augustus as chief priest
(pontifex maximus). It was difficult to put the
toga on properly by oneself, and prominent
Romans had slaves who were specially trained
to perform this function. Togas were costly,
heavy, and cumbersome to wear; the wearer
looked dignified and stately but would have
found it difficult to do anything very active.
Citizens were supposed to wear togas for all
public occasions (here, for example, is a man
being married in a toga), but by the beginning
of the Empire Augustus had to require citizens
to wear the toga in the Forum.

Ouranos = Uranus
Uranus (/ˈjʊərənəs/ or /jʊˈreɪnəs/; Ancient
Greek Οὐρανός, Ouranos [oːranós] meaning
"sky" or "heaven") was the primal Greek god
personifying the sky.
His equivalent in Roman mythology was
Caelus. In Ancient Greek literature, Uranus or
Father Sky was the son and husband of Gaia,
Mother Earth.
Oceanus at Trevi
While Ouranos detested all of his children, he detested the
Elder Cyclopes and Hekatonkheires so much (mainly for their
ugliness) that he imprisoned them in the terrifying abyss
of Tartarus, which was itself deep within the Earth. Enraged,
Gaea told her remaining twelve children (including Oceanus),
the Titans, to take the mighty Scythe that she had forged,
and avenge their brothers by overthrowing and killing their
arrogant and sadistic father. Being immortal, Oceanus
initially did not even understand what "killing" meant, but
the concept was quickly explained to him by Themis, his
most intelligent sister. However, while Oceanus detested his
father, he was ambivalent at the prospect of murdering him,
and did not step up to take the Scythe. Even after his
younger brother Kronos did, Oceanus claimed that he had
important business to attend to under the sea, and refused
to help in the murder (along with his sisters Theia, Tethys,
Themis, Phoebe, Mnemosyne, and Rhea). Thus, Oceanus was
the only male Titan who was not involved in his father's
murder. After committing his evil deed, Kronos hurled the all
of the remaining pieces of Ouranos into the sea as a gesture
of loathing against Oceanus for not helping slay their father.
Much later, these particles would mix with the ocean spray
to formAphrodite.
The Hekatonkheires or Hecatonchires (stress o
n the fourth syllable;[1][2] singular:
"Hekatonkheir" or
"Hecatonchir" /ˈhɛkəˌtɒŋkər/; Greek:Ἑκατόγχει
ρες, "hundred-handed ones"), also called
the Centimanes /ˈsɛntᵻˌmeɪnz/ (Latin: Centima
ni) or Hundred-handers, were figures in an
archaic stage[clarification needed] of Greek
mythology, three giants of incredible strength
and ferocity that surpassed all of the Titans,
whom they helped overthrow. Their name
derives from the Greek ἑκατόν (hekaton;
"hundred") and χείρ (kheir; "hand"), "each of
them having a hundred hands and fifty heads"
(Bibliotheca). Hesiod's Theogony (624, 639,
714, 734–35) reports that the three
Hekatonkheires became the guards of the
gates of Tartarus.

"Veni, vidi, vici" (Classical
Latin: [ˈweːniː ˈwiːdiː
ˈwiːkiː]; Ecclesiastical Latin: [ˈvɛni
ˈvidi ˈvitʃi];
"I came; I saw; I conquered") is
a Latin phrase popularly attributed
to Julius Caesar who, according
to Appian,[1] used the phrase in a
letter to the Roman Senate around
47 BC after he had achieved a
quick victory in his short war
against Pharnaces II of Pontus at
the Battle of Zela.[2]
The phrase is used to refer to a
swift, conclusive victory.

Saturn Devouring His Son is the name given to
a painting by Spanish artist Francisco Goya.
According to the traditional interpretation, it
depicts theGreek myth of the Titan Cronus (in
the title Romanised to Saturn), who, fearing
that he would be overthrown by one of his
children,[1] ate each oneupon their birth. The
work is one of the 14 Black Paintings that Goya
painted directly onto the walls of his house
sometime between 1819 and 1823. It
was transferred to canvas after Goya's death
and has since been held in the Museo del
Prado in Madrid.
