At the command of Zeus, the god Hephaestus crafted a beautiful woman in his forge—the first of her kind and a gift to Epimetheus, the brother of the titan Prometheus. The woman, unnamed in the Theogony but dubbed Pandora ("all gifted") in Works and Days, is showered with gifts by the Olympians, perhaps to make up for her deceitful nature. Athena teaches her to weave, Aphrodite "shed grace upon her head," and Hermes gives her the gift of speech, according to Hesiod, to craft lies. Zeus also gives Pandora a jar, or pithos, which over the millennia was mistranslated as a box. She was told under no circumstances not to open the jar (or box), but owing to her insatiable woman's curiosity, Pandora just cracked the lid.
