Michelangelo, Punishment of Tityus, c. 1532

Tityos or Tityus was a giant from Greek mythology.

Tityos was the son of Elara and Zeus. He was hunted by Apollo and Artemis for attempting to rape their mother Leto. His punishment in Tartarus was to be tortured by two vultures who fed on his liver, which grew back every night.
