Pelagonia Marble

According to Greek Mythology, Hephaestus is the Greek god of  fire, blacksmiths, craftsmen, sculptors and volcanoes. He was the son of Zeus and Hera.
Hephaestus was associated by Greek colonists in southern Italy with the volcano gods Adranus of Mount Etna (in one aspect Etna derives from the Greek word αἴθω (aithō) - meaning "I burn") and Vulcanus, of the Lipari islands.
When Castor, the mythic hero built after oracle, Castoria city, and oriented region's sovereignty by establishing a confederacy, he began thinking expansion to conquer new lands by building two new sites in the plain of Pelagonia (where the Battle of Pelagonia took place in September 1259, between the Empire of Nicaea and the Despotate of Epirus, Sicily and the Principality of Achaea).
The members of the confederation, more than 3000, had patron god Hephaestus, who brought from Sicily Italy three Cyclops as his assistants to build the new territories.
