(wisdom) One of the Titans, child of Uranus and Gaea (Heaven and Earth). Among them, she was considered the most wise, and is said to
have provided the young Zeus with good advice when he began the battle against his father. By Zeus, she is the mother of Athene, who may fairly be
considered her successor: Zeus was given a prophecy that any male child of Metis would supplant him, as he had supplanted his sire, and he his. Zeus
therefore repeated after a fashion his forefather, and swallowed Metis whole, whereupon Athene sprang forth from his forehead.
