CXLVI: Io the Wanderer and Hermes, Boot-Lick of the Gods (Prometheus Bound Part 3)
11.23.2021 - By Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! Greek & Roman Mythology Retold
Prometheus tells Io of her ongoing story of suffering, but also hey! She's going to start quite the dynasty. Finally, Hermes arrives with news from Zeus. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing. Sources: The Prometheus Bound (maybe) by Aeschylus: translations by Herbert Weir Smyth, James Romm, and George Theodoridis. All quotations from the Weir Smyth unless otherwise noted.
