The Mother of All,
Earth, turned the mortal Giants against the immortal Gods of Olympus. The Gods chased the Giants, who retreated fearful. The God of the Sea, Poseidon, had undertaken, at the command of Zeus, to eliminate the Giant Polyvotis, who crossed the Aegean in fear of being saved. Poseidon made him close to Kos island. Poseidon with his trident, took a part of Kos and hurtled it against Giant Polyvotis. Poseidon managed to hit the Giant and mocked him. This piece of Kos became the Island Nisyros.
