E is for Epimetheus

This is a challenge to post every day in April (except on Sundays) blogging thematically from A to Z. Go HERE for details. My A-Z theme this year is Greek Mythology inspired by the book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan that I recently read.  Please be aware that what I write is my interpretation of my findings and may not necessarily be accurate.

Pandora offers jar to Epimetheus

Epimetheus was a Titan whose name means "hindsight"/"afterthinker" while his twin brother, Prometheus, was the opposite,"foresight"/"fore-thinker". The twin Titans were entrusted to create mankind which involved distributing traits to all animals. Epimetheus was responsible for giving a positive trait to every animal, but when it was time to give man a positive trait, lacking foresight he found that there was nothing left.  Later Epimetheus was also said to have accepted the gift of Pandora which lead to the introduction of evil into the world.
