prometheus firePrometheus (clay) (labeled)
A depiction of Prometheus stealing fire from heaven to give to mankind.
In Greek mythology, Prometheus (CR:23) was a god, classified as a Titian, or second generation of divine beings (see: Ennead), credited with creation of man from clay (see: clay creation myth), famous for his theft of fire from the gods, which he gave to mankind.

Creation of humans
Prometheus was said to have created humans by animating a figure of clay by putting into it a spark of fire. (Ѻ)

Osiris | Cross
In c.640BC, Hesiod, in his Theogony (pg. 521) refers to a post or pillar to which Prometheus is fastened, for punishment, by Zeus, for stealing fire. [1]

In c.180AD, Lucian stated:

Prometheus was bound to a cross on Mount Caucasus where an eagle continually gnawed at his liver [emotion center].”
— Lucian (c.180AD), The Liar; cited by Jean Meslier in Testament (pg. 66)

Alternatively, Lucian stated, somewhere, that Prometheus was nailed to two rocks above a ravine in the sight of all, in such a way as to produce the effect of a most serviceable cross, akin to the following: [1]

In addition to Prometheus, connected historically or allegorically with a crucifixion are: Adonis, Apollo, Arys, Bacchus, Buddha, Christna, Horus, Indra, Ixion, Mithras, Osiris, Pythagoras, Quetzalcoatl, Semiramis, and Jupiter. (Ѻ)

In 1875, Kersey Graves, in his The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors, was one of the first to state that Prometheus, like the other culturally-equivalent historical crucified saviors, was an Osiris rescript. [3]

Quotes | On
The following are quotes on Prometheus:

Prometheus, the great reformer and benefactor of mankind, son of the goddess Clymene, was stretched in a cruciform position on the rocks, and tormented by his father, Jupiter [Amen-Ra], who at length consented to allow Hercules [Horus] to liberate him, when he gained immortal fame for having by his agony procured light and knowledge for men. He was said to have formed the first man and woman out of clay, and afterwards to have animated them with the fire, which he stole from the chariot of the sun.”
Herbert Hardwicke (1884), The Popular Faith Unveiled (pg. 49)

Thoth is the Egyptian Prometheus.”
— Ronna Burger (1980), Plato’s Phaedrus [4]
