Theogony[ edit ] The Pandora myth first appears in lines — of Hesiod's poem in epic meterthe Theogony ca. After humans received the stolen gift of fire from Prometheus, an angry Zeus decides to give humanity a punishing gift to compensate for the boon they had been given.
He commands Hephaestus to mold from earth the first woman, a "beautiful evil" whose descendants would torment the human race. After Hephaestus does so, Athena dresses her in a Pandora inc gown, an embroidered veil, garlands and an ornate crown of silver.
This woman goes unnamed in the Theogony, but is presumably Pandora, whose myth Hesiod revisited in Works and Days. When she first appears before gods and mortals, "wonder seized them" as they looked upon her.

But Epimetheus did not listen; he accepted Pandora, who promptly scattered the contents of her jar. As a result, Hesiod tells us, "the earth and sea are full of evils" One item, however, did not escape the jar 96—9: Only Hope was left within her unbreakable house, she remained under the lip of the jar, and did not fly away.
