Saturn

Saturn (also known as Cronus) is a god in a human form, firstly appearing in H.P.Lovecraft :A poem. He is a god in Ancient Roman mythology and is known for devouring his children.

"Etherial spirits of celestial grace;

And he, unspoil'd, may childlike bask again 

Beneath the beams of Saturn's golden reign."

H.P. Lovecraft, Simplicity: A Poem


"Cronus, a son of Uranus and Ge, and the youngest among the Titans. At the instigation of his mother, Cronus unmanned his father for having thrown the Cyclopes, who were likewise his children by Ge, into Tartarus. Out of the blood thus shed sprang up the Erinnyes. The Romans identified their Saturnus with the Cronus of the Greeks."

Sir William Smith, Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology


"Men believe that Zeus . . . put his father Kronos in bonds because he wickedly devoured his children, and he in turn had mutilated his father for similar reasons."

Plato, Euthyphro
