From Titan to Pillar – What Pegman Saw

Today Pegman takes a trip to Tbilisi, Georgia

This ancient cobblestoned city has a complicated history of Persian and Russian rule. Its diverse architecture encompasses Eastern Orthodox churches, ornate art nouveau buildings, and Soviet Modernist structures. Walk around and see what strikes your fancy.

The purpose of this prompt is to inspire you to write 150 words about this place. You can use the Google photo above or stroll around until you see something that strikes your fancy. When you’re done, remember to link your story to the others using the InLinkz frog below. Reading and commenting is half the fun.

So, that said, I did some searching and Googling, as this challenge is wont to make me do, and discovered that Greek Mythology has something to do with the Caucasus Mountains.  Who’d a thunk?

From Titan to Pillar

“It’s bad enough you created man out of clay, Prometheus.  That much I can handle.  You were smart enough to side with us Olympians in the first Titanomachy.  Smart of you, by the way, saved you from being imprisoned in Tartarus.”

“Thanks, Zeus. I’m not stupid. I knew you were way more powerful than us.”

“Silence! You dared trick me into choosing the bones and fat of an ox and then gave the best meat to humanity?  I took away their fire, forcing them to eat their meat raw.  And what do you do?  How dare you!  You stole fire from Mount Olympus and gave it to them!  Do you realise how much power you have given them?”

“But—”

“But nothing!  For this you shall be taken far east and tied to the mountain in Caucasus, your liver to be pecked at and eaten daily by wild birds for eternity.”
