ENKELADOS (or Enceladus) was a Gigante who battled Athene in their war against the gods. When he fled the battlefield, Athene crushed him beneath the Sicilian Mount Aitna. However, according to other accounts, it was the giant Typhoeus who was buried beneath the volcano.

Enkelados’s name is derived from the Greek verb enkeleuô, meaning “to urge on” or “to sound the charge.”02020
