Kratos escapes Hades with the help of the titan Gaia, who tells him to travel to the Island of Creation, where the Sisters of Fate work the Loom of Fate and can change his destiny.

Among the children of Uranus and Gaia were the Titans, who revolted against their father, ending his rule.

Then the rule of Cronos began, but also he was overthrown by his son— Zeus—who inaugurated a third reign (1).

We know less about Polyxenos, but here too we have evidence for his cult in symbiosis with the cult of Demeter; keeping in mind the theme of god-hero antagonism, I note that ‘he who has many guests’ is a conventional epithet of Hadês.

As for Eumolpos ‘he who sings and dances well’, he is the hero-ancestor of the ultimately dominant priestly family at the cult-center of Eleusis; he represents the most current tradition in Eleusis itself. Note the diametrical oppositions between Demeter and the girls, both in movement and in appearance.

The Immortals who preceded Zeus were in existence when the earth was still in chaos and there were no human inhabitants.
