In Greek mythology, the cornucopia was created when Alpheus fought Heracles. Alpheus transformed into a bull, but one of his horns was broken off by Heracles. Another myth relates that while Zeus was being raised in a cave on Mount Ida, Crete, he was suckled by Amalthea; a goat. Zeus accidentally broke off one of Amalthea's horns, which he then blessed to forever overflow with produce.
