Epimetheus was the husband of Pandora in Greek mythology. His brother Prometheus stole fire from Zeus and gave it to man. As "punishment" to Man, Zeus created Pandora, the first woman, for Epimetheus. Prometheus' punishment was I daresay worse. He was strapped to a mountain top and visited by an eagle who ate his liver every day. Since Prometheus was a Titan and therefore practically immortal, his liver grew back every day, so the eagle had to come back, keeping Prometheus in constant agony.
