  URANUS : Greek protogenos god of the sky ; mythology ; pictures : OURANOS
It was probably similar in most respects to Hesiod's, but with a few significant points of divergence--Ouranos, Gaia and Pontos, for example, were apparently represented as children of Aither (Upper Air) and Hemera (Day).

Deities first worshipped as the patrons of cities or places came to be collected together as empires extended over larger territories.
Conquests could lead to the subordination of the elder culture's pantheon to a newer one, as in the Greek Titanomachia, and possibly also the case of the Aesir and Vanir in the Norse mythos.
Cultural exchange could lead to "the same" deity being renowned in two places under different names, as with the Greeks, Etruscans, and Romans; also to the introduction of elements of a "foreign" religion into a local cult, as with Egyptian Osiris worship brought to ancient Greece.

The example of Titanomachy which Root mentions is the demolition and reconstruction of mathematics which took place in the first half of the twentieth century, but a better-known one might be the overthrow of the Newtonian universe with the advent of quantum and relativistic physics.
Freedom is held to be essential to technological progress and the Titanomachia becomes a kind of holy destruction in the battle between Tech and Evil.
The Titanomachia is thus just a particularly violent metaphor for the changing of paradigms.

 Theogonies
As always, discussion of such a source inevitably involves us in the problems connected with the antiquity of the Epic Cycle: we simply do not know if the events recounted in those poems were concocted in a post-Homeric/Hesiodic period to flesh out earlier references, or drawn from a genuine pre-Homeric tradition, or combined from both.
From the latter writer we learn that the author of the epic Titanomachia also discussed the matter, but Philodemos' text breaks off just as the guardians are about to be named.
Of Archaic poets, Mimneros too places the Hesperides in the West, and a fragment of Stesichoros describes their golden homes on a lovely island, presumably in connection with Herakles' acquisition of the apples as part of his Labors.

 A Moveable Beast: Prometheus
Well, I thought Titanomachia (the battle of the Olympians and Titans in Greek mythology) would illicit some interesting thoughts, and i was right.
Prometheus, meaning forsight in Greek, was one of the Titans that defended against Zeus and his siblings during the Titanomachia.
His name means "forsight" and it is this gift which is supposed to have shown him who would win the Titanomachia and convinced him to defect to Zeus's side.

While most of the clues focus on the Titans, ECHL, hockey, Trenton, and related topics, you will notice that I needed to dig pretty deep to fill in the gaps (no good crossword puzzle would be complete without some obscure items).
Give me credit though, Titanomachia was created by hand without the use of any puzzle making software or crossword dictionaries.
For those of you not familiar with the Trenton Titans Booster Club, the "Booster Club" page on the main menu will be of great help (I have also archived the Board and Chairpersons list at the time the puzzle was created).

The details of archaic myth, remained in the legends about giants, fighting against gods, should be the fragments of Caucasian Titanomachia.
The main part in this opposition was given to the goddess, mother of the oldest generation of gods, who had been punished together with her sons.
Regarding the mentioned, we suggest, that the Caucasian model of Titanomachia is of local origin.

Apollodorus says that Tartaros was the place were Ouranos threw his children (the Cyclopes and the Titans) and where Gaia told Zeus to find allies that would help him win the Titanomachia.
In the Titanomachia, it is stated that Pontos is father of Aigaion (Aigaion was an ally of the Titans and after him the Aegean Sea was named - the name itself means Aegean Sea or Goatish Sea) with Gaia and in the Bachylides it is stated that with Gaia he became father of the Telkhines.
The Telkhines were magicians who later angered Zeus, who cast them into the depths of the sea or into Tartaros.

The Olympic Gods are not the only ones to return; the Titans and Giants, their mortal enemies, have also come to life.
Defeated by Zeus in the Titanomachia (War of the Titans) ages ago, they were banished and cast into the bottomless pit of Tartarus, far below the Land of the Dead.
The Titans wish nothing but take their revenge and overthrow the Olympians; althought they can not directly influence the real world outside of Tartarus, they can communicate with their worshippers by means of visions and dreams, and grant them magical powers if it serves their purposes.

Both works can actually be combined to form an adequate Creation myth, though I had mostly relied on the Theogony.
The Theogony begins with Chaos and end with Zeus' reign, and it included the tale of Titanomachia, which is the war between the Titans and the Olympians.
You will also find the about Prometheus and the Deluge.
