The gigtanomachy

The most important divine struggle in Greek mythology was the Gigantomachy, the battle fought between the Giants and the Olympian gods for supremacy of the cosmos.

According to Ovid, Earth [Gaia] did not want the Giants to perish without a trace, so “reeking with the copious blood of her gigantic sons”, she gave life to the “steaming gore” of the blood soaked battleground. These new offspring, like their fathers the Giants, also hated the gods and possessed a bloodthirsty desire for “savage slaughter”.

The gods finally prevailed through the aid of Heracles the archer, and the Giants were slain. Many of them were believed to lie buried under mountains and to indicate their presence by volcanic fires and earthquakes.
