    Bk I:125-150 The Bronze Age

    Third came the people of the bronze age, with fiercer natures, readier to indulge in savage warfare, but not yet vicious. The harsh iron age was last. Immediately every kind of wickedness erupted into this age of baser natures: truth, shame and honour vanished; in their place were fraud, deceit, and trickery, violence and pernicious desires. They set sails to the wind, though as yet the seamen had poor knowledge of their use, and the ships’ keels that once were trees standing amongst high mountains, now leaped through uncharted waves. The land that was once common to all, as the light of the sun is, and the air, was marked out, to its furthest boundaries, by wary surveyors. Not only did they demand the crops and the food the rich soil owed them, but they entered the bowels of the earth, and excavating brought up the wealth it had concealed in shade, wealth that incites men to crime. And now harmful iron appeared, and gold more harmful than iron. War came, whose struggles employ both, waving clashing arms with bloodstained hands. They lived on plunder: friend was not safe with friend, relative with relative, kindness was rare between brothers. Husbands longed for the death of their wives, wives for the death of their husbands. Murderous stepmothers mixed deadly aconite, and sons inquired into their father’s years before their time. Piety was dead, and virgin , last of all the immortals to depart, herself abandoned the blood-drenched earth.

    In the flood stories, the gods, are depending on the humans to act great to each other and to be great to the gods, most notably Zeus.

    Deucalion, son of Prometheus, in an effort to control the animal instincts of mankind asked Zeus to be merciful. Yet Zeus had already decided to destroy the corrupted generation of mankind. Only Deucalion and his wife Pyrrha were saved—both of whom were considered of the ranks of the gods, the most righteous amongst men —when Deucalion took advice from his father, Prometheus, and constructed an ark. He and his wife used the ark to escape the flood sent by Zeus. The rain and thunders lasted for nine days and nine nights, and the land was flooded, drowning the generation of men except for a few who were saved by running on the top of the mountains. Once the flood was over, Deucalion and Pyrrha landed on a mount (some suggest that it was mount Parnasus) and offered sacrifices to Zeus. The myth says that once they saw the extent of the destruction, their grief was so great that the tears kept pouring from their eyes.
    Their wish was to create a new mankind. Deucalion and Pyrrha prayed in many different sanctuaries for a new mankind. It was at the temple of the goddess Themis that Zeus listened to their petitions and their request was granted. The goddess told them that for a new mankind to be created, Deucalion and Pyrrha had to cover their eyes and throw the ‘bones of their mother’ behind them. What exactly the ‘bones of their mother meant’ is not clear, however the most common interpretation is that it meant stones from the earth. Each stone that Deucalion threw became a man, and each stone Pyrrha threw became a woman. This is how the new human kind—that we belong to—was created.

    Deucalion and Pyrrha
    Deucalion was the son of the last Titan (god), Prometheus. According to Hesiod, Prometheus and the god Zeus were in conflict. Prometheus was the one who created man. When mankind became mean, greedy, and disobedient to the gods, Zeus decided to destroy them.
