  Adamanthea
A nymph in Greek mythology, Adamanthea helped raise the infant Zeus to hide him from his father, Cronus.
Since a prophesy from his mother, Gaia, predicting that his own offspring would overthrow his supreme position in the pantheon, Cronus swallowed all of his childrn as soon as they were born.
Since Cronus ruled over the earth, the heavens and the sea, she hid him by dangling him on a rope from a tree so he was suspended between earth, sea and sky and thus, invisible to his father.
