In Greek mythology Pandora was the first woman, created by Zeus to avenge Prometheus's theft of fire. Pandora, whose name means "all-gifted," was endowed with every possible charm and sent to earth with a very special deadly box. Prometheus was too wise to be deceived by Pandora's beauty, but his younger brother, Epimetheus, fell in love with her and accepted the box as a wedding present from the gods. When Epimetheus allowed Pandora to open the box, a cloud of evils flew out, spreading death, disease, and destruction throughout the world. All that remained inside the box was one small comfort-hope.
