[29], Following Hesiod and others, Nonnus gives Typhon many heads (though untotaled), but in addition to snake heads,[30] Nonnus also gives Typhon many other animal heads, including leopards, lions, bulls, boars, bears, cattle, wolves, and dogs, which combine to make 'the cries of all wild beasts together',[31] and a "babel of screaming sounds". 301–302; Ogden 2013a. [149] This time the monster is female, and may be related to the Pythian dragoness Delphyne,[150] or Typhon's mate Echidna, since like Echidna, Tiamat was the mother of a brood of monsters. Many Greek writers wrote about Typhon and described the amount of fear people had from this giant creature. [77] Immediately Typhon extends "his clambering hands into the upper air" and begins a long and concerted attack upon the heavens. [104] The Hesiodic Shield of Heracles names a mountain near Thebes Typhaonium, perhaps reflecting an early tradition which also had Typhon buried under a Boeotian mountain. According to Hesiod's Theogony (c. 8th – 7th century BC), Typhon was the son of Gaia (Earth) and Tartarus: "when Zeus had driven the Titans from heaven, huge Earth bore her youngest child Typhoeus of the love of Tartarus, by the aid of golden Aphrodite". Dies hielt aber nicht lange an.Zeus schaffte es aber in einem erbitterten Kampf, Typhon unter dem Ätna gefangen zu halten, wäre aber ohne Hermes schon vor dem endgültigen Kampf verloren gewesen, da Typhon ihn mit der Sichel, die schon Uranos entmannt hatte, seine Sehnen … [166], While distinct in early accounts, in later accounts Typhon was often considered to be one of the Giants. [47] The Harpies, in Hesiod the daughters of Thaumas and the Oceanid Electra,[48] in one source, are said to be the daughters of Typhon. Typhon can be considered both a god and a monster. According to Hesiod, Typhon was "terrible, outrageous and lawless",[13] immensely powerful, and on his shoulders were one hundred snake heads, that emitted fire and every kind of noise: Strength was with his hands in all that he did and the feet of the strong god were untiring. Typhon ist in der griechischen Mythologie eine äußerst unappetitliche und furchteinflößende Gestalt. [151], Like the Typhonomachy, several Near East myths, tell of battles between a storm-god and a snaky monster associated with Mount Kasios, the modern Jebel Aqra. Typhon throws torrents of water at Zeus' thunderbolts to quench them, but Zeus is able to cut off some of Typhon's hands with "frozen volleys of air as by a knife", and hurling thunderbolts is able to burn more of typhon's "endless hands", and cut off some of his "countless heads". 596) Typhon (Typhón, auch Τυφωεύς Typhoeus, Τυφάων Typhaon) ist als Sohn der Gaia und des Tartaros eine Gestalt der griechischen Mythologie. Zeus holte sich vom Olymp einen neuen Vorrat an Donnerkeilen, da ihm auch diese von Typhon entwendet worden waren, und stellte sich Typhon erneut zum Kampf. From his shoulders grew a hundred heads of a snake, a fearful dragon, with dark, flickering tongues, and from under the brows of his eyes in his marvellous heads flashed fire, and fire burned from his heads as he glared. Seth ist ein Wüstengott und wird mit den Stürmen und Unwettern in Verbindung gebracht, weshalb er als Gott des Chaos und des Verderbens gilt. [62] In one poem Pindar has Typhon being held prisoner by Zeus under Etna,[63] and in another says that Typhon "lies in dread Tartarus", stretched out underground between Mount Etna and Cumae. [152], From the south side of the Jebel Aqra, comes the tale of Baal Sapon, and Yamm, the deified Sea (like Tiamat above). [3], Numerous other sources mention Typhon as being the offspring of Gaia, or simply "earth-born", with no mention of Tartarus. Only Dionysus, Athena, and Zeus remained in their regular forms.Athena actually claimed that Zeus was a coward, and this led the god to attack Typhon before he could take Mount Olympus, which is the home of all of the Olympian gods. Virgil, Silius Italicus and Claudian, all calling the island "Inarime", have Typhon buried there. Typhon was a colossal beast with the head and torso of a man and a hundred dragon heads or a hundred serpent heads. [114], Just across the Gulf of Issus from Corycus, in ancient Syria, was Mount Kasios (modern Jebel Aqra) and the Orontes River, sites associated with Typhon's battle with Zeus,[115] and according to Strabo, the historian Posidonius (c. 2nd century BC) identified the Arimoi with the Aramaeans of Syria. [59] Pindar apparently knew of a tradition which had the gods, in order to escape from Typhon, transform themselves into animals, and flee to Egypt. Apollodorus describes Typhon as a huge winged monster, whose head "brushed the stars", human in form above the waist, with snake coils below, and fire flashing from his eyes: In size and strength he surpassed all the offspring of Earth. Typhon (Ancient Greek: Τυφῶν, Tuphōn), also Typhoeus Τυφωεύς, Tuphōeus), Typhaon Τυφάων, Tuphaōn) or Typhos (Τυφώς, Tuphōs) is the final son of Gaia, fathered by Tartarus, and is the most deadly monster of Greek mythology. Typhon also known as the Father of All Monsters, was the most powerful of the Titans who tried to conquer the world but he was challenged by Zeus and then beaten by Hera when she hurled a lightning bolt at one of Typhon's nostrils. [142] In particular, the Typhonomachy is generally thought to have been influenced by several Near Eastern monster-slaying myths.[143]. Penglase, pp. But Typhon, twining his snaky coils around Zeus, was able to wrest away the sickle and cut the sinews from Zeus' hands and feet. Typhon is a monstrous creature from Greek mythology. Edward Tripp: Reclams Lexikon der antiken Mythologie. ΤυφῶνTyphón, auch ΤυφωεύςTyphoeus, ΤυφάωνTyphaon) ist als Sohn der Gaiaund des Tartaroseine Gestalt der griechischen Mythologie. [86], With Typhon distracted, Zeus takes back his thunderbolts. [122] The earliest forms,Typhoeus and Typhaon, occur prior to the 5th century BC. Lycophron has both Typhon and Giants buried under the island of Ischia. According to Hesiod, without the quick action of Zeus, Typhon would have "come to reign over mortals and immortals". In one version, Tarhunna seeks help from the goddess Inara, who lures Illuyanka from his lair with a banquet, thereby enabling Tarhunna to surprise and kill Illuyanka. Typhon (Mythologie) schwarzfigurige Hydria, um 550 v. Now clearly the supreme power in the cosmos, Zeus is elected king of gods. And flame shot forth from the thunderstricken lord in the dim rugged glens of the mount, when he was smitten. [136] Delphyne and Echidna, besides both being intimately connected to Typhon—one as mother, the other as mate—share other similarities. [32] Nonnus also gives Typhon "legions of arms innumerable",[33] and where Nicander had only said that Typhon had "many" hands, and Ovid had given Typhon a hundred hands, Nonnus gives Typhon two hundred. He is known by many names – Typhon, Typhaon, Typheous, Typhos and Typho – but whatever name you use to describe him he was the most horrifying and fearsome beast of all. Zeus with his thunderbolt easily overcomes Typhon,[56] who is thrown down to earth in a fiery crash: So when Zeus had raised up his might and seized his arms, thunder and lightning and lurid thunderbolt, he leaped from Olympus and struck him, and burned all the marvellous heads of the monster about him. [120], Another place, mentioned by Strabo, as being associated with Arima, is the island of Ischia, where according to Pherecydes of Athens, Typhon had fled, and in the area where Pindar and others had said Typhon was buried. 286–287; Ogden 2013a. Seitdem ist Typhon unter dem Ätna gefangen. Cadmus stops playing, and Typhon, released from his spell, rushes back to his cave to discover the thunderbolts gone. [124] The later forms Typhos and Typhon occur from the 5th century BC onwards, with Typhon becoming the standard form by the end of that century. The early second millennium BC Akkadian epic Anzu tells the story of another combat of Ninurta with a monstrous challenger. [64] In Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound, a "hissing" Typhon, his eyes flashing, "withstood all the gods", but "the unsleeping bolt of Zeus" struck him, and "he was burnt to ashes and his strength blasted from him by the lightning bolt. A great part of huge earth was scorched by the terrible vapor and melted as tin melts when heated by men's art in channelled crucibles; or as iron, which is hardest of all things, is shortened by glowing fire in mountain glens and melts in the divine earth through the strength of Hephaestus. Typhon, also known as the Father of All Monsters, is a character from Hercules: The Animated Series. The most elaborate description of Typhon is found in Nonnus's Dionysiaca. Typhon then fled to Sicily, where Zeus threw Mount Etna on top of Typhon burying him, and so finally defeated him. And Valerius Flaccus has Typhon's head under Etna, and all of Sicily shaken when Typhon "struggles". De Typhon het bi de Arimer mit de Schlangefrau Echidna vill Uughüür zügt, nämmli de Traach Ladon, d Wasserschlange Hydra, wo vom Herakles umbroocht woren isch, d Gorgone, d Chimaira, de Höllehund Kerberos und de Orthos, d Sphinx, d Skylla und anderi mee. Typhon ist ein Ungeheuer mit hundert Drachenköpfen. named ‘Expeller’ and ‘Chaser’, which fly like eagles from the storm-god's hands. Nun will Hera es ihm gleichtun und ohne Zeus’ Beteiligung ein Schrecken erregendes und dadurch auch im Olymp Respekt erzwingendes Geschöpf aus sich gebären. Typhon war der Sohn von Gaia und Tartaros und gehörte zu den Giganten. According to Apollodorus, Typhon, "hurling kindled rocks", attacked the gods, "with hissings and shouts, spouting a great jet of fire from his mouth." And there were voices in all his dreadful heads which uttered every kind of sound unspeakable; for at one time they made sounds such that the gods understood, but at another, the noise of a bull bellowing aloud in proud ungovernable fury; and at another, the sound of a lion, relentless of heart; and at another, sounds like whelps, wonderful to hear; and again, at another, he would hiss, so that the high mountains re-echoed. [101] Also said to be buried under Etna were the Hundred-hander Briareus,[102] and Asteropus who was perhaps one of the Cyclopes. See also Fontenrose, The Arabic Contributions to the English Language: An Historical Dictionary by Garland Hampton Cannon and Alan S. Kaye considers typhoon "a special case, transmitted by Cantonese, from Arabic, but ultimately deriving from Greek. Chr., Staatliche Antikensammlungen (Inv. These stories particularly resemble details found in the accounts of the Typhonomachy of Apollodorus, Oppian and Nonnus, which, though late accounts, possible preserve much earlier ones:[155] The storm-god’s initial defeat (Apollodorus, Nonnus), the loss of vital body parts (sinews: Apollodorus, Nonnus), the help of allies (Hermes and Aegipan: Apollodorus; Cadmos and Pan: Nonnus; Pan: Oppian), the luring of the serpentine opponent from his lair through the trickery of a banquet (Oppian, or by music: Nonnus). [154] In both of these versions, Tarhunna suffers an initial defeat against Illuyanka. [5] Hera, angry at Zeus for having given birth to Athena by himself, prayed to Gaia, Uranus, and the Titans, to give her a son stronger than Zeus, then slapped the ground and became pregnant. For an extensive discussion of the similarities, see Fontenrose. Lane Fox, pp. Typhon piles up mountains as battlements and with his "legions of arms innumerable", showers volley after volley of trees and rocks at Zeus, but all are destroyed, or blown aside, or dodged, or thrown back at Typhon. Through the mist, Typhon appears to mortals as a massive freak storm and tornadoes that tear apart everything in their path. In stories, Typhon often ap… Herodotus says that Typhon was deposed by Osiris' son Horus, whom Herodutus equates with Apollo (with Osiris being equated with Dionysus),[161] and after his defeat by Horus, Typhon was "supposed to have been hidden" in the "Serbonian marsh" (identified with modern Lake Bardawil) in Egypt. Typhon is named after the monster in greek mythology, Typhon. [159] Such a story arose perhaps as a way for the Greeks to explain Egypt's animal-shaped gods. [66] Apollonius of Rhodes (3rd century BC), like Pherecydes, presents a multi-stage battle, with Typhon being struck by Zeus' thunderbolt on mount Caucasus, before fleeing to the mountains and plain of Nysa, and ending up (as already mentioned by the fifth-century BC Greek historian Herodotus) buried under Lake Serbonis in Egypt. Typhon's true appearance is unknown, since in The Last Olympian, he is always seen to be surrounded by thunder clouds. November 2020 um 15:33 Uhr bearbeitet.

Another c. 1250 BC Hittite text, derived from the Hurrians, tells of the Hurrian storm-god Teshub (with whom the Hittite's Tarhunna came to be identified) who lived on Mount Hazzi, the Hurrian name for the Jebel Aqra, and his battle with the sea-serpent Hedammu. [34], According to Hesiod's Theogony, Typhon "was joined in love" to Echidna, a monstrous half-woman and half-snake, who bore Typhon "fierce offspring". He was then imprisoned by Zeus under Mount Etna, causing him a massive headache over the centuries. Typhon attempted to overthrow Zeus for the supremacy of the cosmos. [84] Cadmus then tells Typhon that, if he liked the "little tune" of his pipes, then he would love the music of his lyre – if only it could be strung with Zeus' sinews. Other descriptions claim that his searing eyes produced scorching fire while lava poured from his lips. [105] And some apparently claimed that Typhon was buried beneath a mountain in Boeotia, from which came exhalations of fire. According to Strabo, Typhon was said to have cut the serpentine channel of the Orontes River, which flowed beneath the Syrian Mount Kasios (modern Jebel Aqra), while fleeing from Zeus,[69] and some placed the battle at Catacecaumene ("Burnt Land"),[70] a volcanic plain, on the upper Gediz River, between the ancient kingdoms of Lydia, Mysia and Phrygia, near Mount Tmolus (modern Bozdağ) and Sardis the ancient capital of Lydia.[71]. 21, 379–380, 381; Burkert, p. 20; Penglase, pp. [99] In Prometheus Bound, Typhon is imprisoned underneath Etna, while above him Hephaestus "hammers the molten ore", and in his rage, the "charred" Typhon causes "rivers of fire" to pour forth. [14], The Homeric Hymn to Apollo describes Typhon as "fell" and "cruel", and like neither gods nor men. Though Hesiod has Typhon simply cast into Tartarus by Zeus, some have read a reference to Mount Etna in Hesiod's description of Typhon's fall: And flame shot forth from the thunderstricken lord in the dim rugged glens of the mount when he was smitten. For an extensive discussion see Lane Fox, especially pp. He recently appeared in the book "More in Heaven and Hell". [156] Just as the Typhonomachy can be seen as a sequel to the Titanomachy, a different Hittite text derived from the Hurrians, The Song of Ullikummi, a kind of sequel to the Hittite "kingship in heaven" succession myths of which the story of Teshub and Hedammu formed a part, tells of a second monster, this time made of stone, named Ullikummi that Teshub must defeat, in order to secure his rule. He débuts, with his appearance in around 700 BCE and usually ends at around the 9th Century. Typhon was a large serpentine monster that belonged to the deadliest animals that existed in that time in Greek mythology. Nachdem er groß geworden war, stieg er zum Olymp empor, wo er die Götter mit seinem Gebrüll aus hundert Kehlen so verängstigte, dass sie nach Ägypten flohen, wo sie sich als Tiere versteckten. [52] The earliest mention of Typhon, and his only occurrence in Homer, is a passing reference in the Iliad to Zeus striking the ground around where Typhon lies defeated. Typhon , also Typhoeus (/taɪˈfiːəs/; Τυφωεύς), Typhaon (Τυφάων) or Typhos (Τυφώς), was a monstrous serpentine giant and one of the deadliest creatures in Greek mythology. Even so, then, the earth melted in the glow of the blazing fire.[94]. Die Araber erweiterten diesen Begriff um die tropischen Wirbelstürme im indischen Ozean, woraus sich wahrscheinlich der heutige Begriff Taifun ableitet. Baal defeats Yamm with two throwing clubs (thunderbolts?) [35] First, according to Hesiod, there was Orthrus,[36] the two-headed dog who guarded the Cattle of Geryon, second Cerberus,[37] the multiheaded dog who guarded the gates of Hades, and third the Lernaean Hydra,[38] the many-headed serpent who, when one of its heads was cut off, grew two more. [2] The mythographer Apollodorus (1st or 2nd century AD) adds that Gaia bore Typhon in anger at the gods for their destruction of her offspring the Giants. Ninurta destroys Anzu on a mountainside, and is portrayed as lashing the ground where Anzu lay with a rainstorm and floodwaters, just as Homer has Zeus lash the land about Typhon with his thunderbolts. Im Kampf um die Vorherrschaft über die Welt unterlag er in fürchterlichem Götterkampf schließlich Zeus. Und dort wurde Zeus nun auch versteckt. Typhon carried the disabled Zeus across the sea to the Corycian cave in Cilicia where he set the she-serpent Delphyne to guard over Zeus and his severed sinews, which Typhon had hidden in a bearskin. [87], The day ends with Typhon yet unchallenged, and while the other gods "moved about the cloudless Nile", Zeus waits through the night for the coming dawn. [81] But Zeus devises a plan with Cadmus and Pan to beguile Typhon. [96], Thus Pindar has Typhon in Tartarus, and buried under not just Etna, but under a vast volcanic region stretching from Sicily to Cumae (in the vicinity of modern Naples), a region which presumably also included Mount Vesuvius, as well as Ischia. [6], Several sources locate Typhon's birth and dwelling place in Cilicia, and in particular the region in the vicinity of the ancient Cilician coastal city of Corycus (modern Kızkalesi, Turkey).

[106], Homer describes a place he calls the "couch [or bed] of Typhoeus", which he locates in the land of the Arimoi (εἰν Ἀρίμοις), where Zeus lashes the land about Typhoeus with his thunderbolts. [163] They, like their younger brother Typhon after them, challenged Zeus for supremacy of the cosmos,[164] were (in later representations) shown as snake-footed,[165] and end up buried under volcanos. For a discussion of Python, see Ogden 2013a. So verwandelte sich Zeus in einen Widder – während Athene als einzige standgehalten hatte und Zeus und die anderen verspottete. Sie gebar den Typhon in den Korykischen Grotten bei Korykos in Kilikien im südöstlichen Kleinasien, so dass er ebenso wie Zeus in seiner eigenen Jugend ungestört heranwachsen konnte. [130], The name may have influenced the Persian word tūfān which is a source of the meteorological term typhoon.[131]. [92] Finally Typhon falls, and Zeus shouts out a long stream of mocking taunts, telling Typhon that he is to be buried under Sicily's hills, with a cenotaph over him which will read "This is the barrow of Typhoeus, son of Earth, who once lashed the sky with stones, and the fire of heaven burnt him up".[93]. [54] In the Theogony Zeus and Typhon meet in cataclysmic conflict: [Zeus] thundered hard and mightily: and the earth around resounded terribly and the wide heaven above, and the sea and Ocean's streams and the nether parts of the earth. Typhon ist ein Ungeheuer aus der Griechischen Mythologie. Typhon is attacked by the four winds, and "frozen volleys of jagged hailstones. [78] Then "leaving the air" he turns his attack upon the seas. 18–19; West 1997, pp. Zeus' apparently easy victory over Typhon in Hesiod, in contrast to other accounts of the battle (see below), is consistent with, for example, what Fowler 2013, Perhaps this was supposed to be the same sickle which Cronus used to castrate. Supported, with caveats, by West 1997, p. 303: "Here, then, we have a divinity [Baʿal Zaphon] with a name which might indeed have become "Typhon" in Greek", but rejected by Lane Fox, p. 298. In the daytime her rivers roll out a fiery flood of smoke, while in the darkness of night the crimson flame hurls rocks down to the deep plain of the sea with a crashing roar. [18] A Chalcidian hydria (c. 540–530 BC), depicts Typhon as a winged humanoid from the waist up, with two snake tails below. Typhon's story is also connected with that of Python (the serpent killed by Apollo), and both stories probably derived from several Near Eastern antecedents. The two fought a cataclysmic battle, which Zeus finally won with the aid of his thunderbolts. Even so, then, the earth melted in the glow of the blazing fire. [132] The Hesiodic succession myth describes how Uranus, the original ruler of the cosmos, hid his offspring away inside Gaia, but was overthrown by his Titan son Cronus, who castrated Uranus, and how in turn, Cronus, who swallowed his children as they were born, was himself overthrown by his son Zeus, whose mother had given Cronus a stone wrapped in swaddling clothes to swallow, in place of Zeus. [43], Later authors mostly retain these offspring of Typhon by Echidna, while adding others. [57], Defeated, Typhon is cast into Tartarus by an angry Zeus. But when Zeus had conquered him and lashed him with strokes, Typhoeus was hurled down, a maimed wreck, so that the huge earth groaned. Die späthellenistischen Griechen setzten Typhon mit dem ägyptischen Gott Seth gleich. Enrich your vocabulary with the French Definition dictionary Incensed Typhon unleashes devastation upon the world: animals are devoured, (Typhon's many animal heads each eat animals of its own kind), rivers turned to dust, seas made dry land, and the land "laid waste". Reasonator; PetScan; Scholia; Statistics; Search depicted; Subcategories. His strength restored, Zeus chased Typhon to mount Nysa, where the Moirai tricked Typhon into eating "ephemeral fruits" which weakened him. [144] Like Typhon, Asag was a monstrous hissing offspring of Earth (Ki), who grew mighty and challenged the rule of Ninurta, who like Zeus, was a storm-god employing winds and floods as weapons. Homer uses Typhoeus,[123] Hesiod and the Homeric Hymn to Apollo use both Typhoeus and Typhaon. [40] The mythographer Pherecydes of Athens (5th century BC) also names Prometheus' eagle,[41] and adds Ladon (though Pherecydes does not use this name), the dragon that guarded the golden apples in the Garden of the Hesperides (according to Hesiod, the offspring of Ceto and Phorcys). [148] Like Zeus, Marduk was a storm-god, who employed wind and lightning as weapons, and who, before he can succeed to the kingship of the gods, must defeat a huge and fearsome enemy in single combat. [157], From apparently as early as Hecataeus of Miletus (c. 550 BC – c. 476 BC), Typhon was identified with Set, the Egyptian god of chaos and storms. TYPHON (mythologie) — TYPHON, mythologie Dans la mythologie grecque, ce fils cadet de Gaia (la Terre) et du Tartare était un monstre effroyable qui avait cent têtes de dragon pour doigts et était si gigantesque que son crâne touchait aux étoiles. 44–47; West 1997, pp. [76] Zeus hides his thunderbolts in a cave, so that he might seduce the maiden Plouto, and so produce Tantalus. Dieser musste sich auf den Berg Nysa zurückziehen, wo er dem Rat der Schicksalsgöttinnen folgend Nahrung zu sich nahm, wie sie auch die Menschen essen – Eintagsfrüchte, die ihn nur vorübergehend stärken sollten. einen Asteroiden, siehe Typhon. Gaia gebar Typhon mit Tartaros, weil sie Rache für ihre Kinder, den Titanen und den Giganten, wollte, da diese beide gegen die Olympier verloren hatten. Die späthellenistischen Griechen setzten Typhon mit dem ägyptischen Gott Seth, dem Gott des Chaos und der Vernichtung, gleich. typhon definition in French dictionary, typhon meaning, synonyms, see also 'typho',typon',typhlo',typo'. [50] According to Hesiod, the defeated Typhon is the father of destructive storm winds.[51]. And like Apollodorus' Typhon, Asag evidently won an initial victory, before being finally overcome by Ninurta. Ovid has Typhon buried under all of Sicily, with his left and right hands under Pelorus and Pachynus, his feet under Lilybaeus, and his head under Etna; where he "vomits flames from his ferocious mouth". [15] Three of Pindar's poems have Typhon as hundred-headed (as in Hesiod),[16] while apparently a fourth gives him only fifty heads,[17] but a hundred heads for Typhon became standard. [108], But neither Homer nor Hesiod say anything more about where these Arimoi or this Arima might be. Griffiths, J. Gwyn, "The Flight of the Gods Before Typhon: An Unrecognized Myth". Typhon (griechisch Τυφῶν Typhón, auch Τυφωεύς Typhoeus, Τυφάων Typhaon) ist als Sohn der Gaia und des Tartaros eine Gestalt der griechischen Mythologie. [19] Aeschylus calls Typhon "fire-breathing". "[80], Now Zeus' sinews had somehow – Nonnus does not say how or when — fallen to the ground during their battle, and Typhon had taken them also. [112] The b scholia to Iliad 2.783, mentioned above, says Typhon was born in Cilicia "under Arimon",[113] and Nonnus mentions Typhon's "bloodstained cave of Arima" in Cilicia. As far as the thighs he was of human shape and of such prodigious bulk that he out-topped all the mountains, and his head often brushed the stars. 245, 284, 285–286; Ogden 2013a. The poet Pindar (c. 470 BC) calls Typhon "Cilician,"[7] and says that Typhon was born in Cilicia and nurtured in "the famous Cilician cave",[8] an apparent allusion to the Corycian cave in Turkey. [60] Pindar calls Typhon the "enemy of the gods",[61] and says that he was defeated by Zeus' thunderbolt. Typhon kommt in der griechischen Mythologie die Rolle des Vaters der warmen und gefährlichen Winde zu. The Theogony next mentions an ambiguous "she", which might refer to Echidna, as the mother of the Chimera (a fire-breathing beast that was part lion, part goat, and had a snake-headed tail) with Typhon then being the father. Other tablets associate the defeat of the snaky Yamm with the slaying of a seven headed serpent ‘’Ltn’’ (Litan/Lotan), apparently corresponding to the biblical Leviathan.[153]. [140], Python was also perhaps connected with a different Corycian Cave than the one in Cilicia, this one on the slopes of Parnassus above Delphi, and just as the Corycian cave in Cilicia was thought to be Typhon and Echidna's lair, and associated with Typhon's battle with Zeus, there is evidence to suggest that the Corycian cave above Delphi was supposed to be Python's (or Delphyne's) lair, and associated with his (or her) battle with Apollo. In later accounts Typhon was often confused with the Giants. Typhon (altgriechisch Τυφῶν Typhṓn, auch Τυφωεύς Typhōeús, Τυφάων Typháōn) ist als Sohn der Gaia und des Tartaros ein Mischwesen der griechischen Mythologie. Defeated, Typhon was cast into Tartarus, or buried underneath Mount Etna, or the island of Ischia. However, one source has Typhon as the son of Hera alone, while another makes Typhon the offspring of Cronus. And through the two of them heat took hold on the dark-blue sea, through the thunder and lightning, and through the fire from the monster, and the scorching winds and blazing thunderbolt. Again the storm-god is aided by a goddess Sauska (equivalent to Inaru), who this time seduces the monster with music (as in Nonnus), drink, and sex, successfully luring the serpent from his lair in the sea. [162], Typhon bears a close resemblance to an older generation of descendants of Gaia, the Giants. [53] Hesiod's Theogony gives the first account of their battle. [39], While mentioning Cerberus and "other monsters" as being the offspring of Echidna and Typhon, the mythographer Acusilaus (6th century BC) adds the Caucasian Eagle that ate the liver of Prometheus. Lexicon Iconographicum Mythologiae Classicae, https://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Typhon_(Mythologie)&oldid=205628876, Mythologisches Wesen als Namensgeber für einen Asteroiden, Wikipedia:VIAF in Wikipedia vorhanden, fehlt jedoch in Wikidata, „Creative Commons Attribution/Share Alike“. [49], The sea serpents which attacked the Trojan priest Laocoön, during the Trojan War, were perhaps supposed to be the progeny of Typhon and Echidna. Such a creature is bound beneath the dark and leafy heights of Aetna and beneath the plain, and his bed scratches and goads the whole length of his back stretched out against it.
