Pandora opens the box

Pandora's Pithos (πίθος), also known as Pandora's Jar or Pandora's Box, is a object filled with evil.


Prometheus gave the gift of fire to humanity against the decree of Zeus. Zeus bid the Olympians to create Pandora. Amongst the gifts given to her, she was instilled with curiosity. She was given the box and told never to open. However, her inquisitiveness got the better of her and she opened the box, releasing a multitude of evils into the world.
