Pallas (Giant)


Pallas (Giant)

Pallas was one of the Gigantes born of the blood which spilled onto Gaia when Cronus castrated his father Uranus. [Hesiod: "Theogony", 176] Pallas confronted Athena during the Gigantomachy, where she killed him and turned his skin into a shield (the Aegis). [Apollodorus: "Bibliotheca" 1.6.2] Pallas is sometimes referred to as being goat-like.
