The Titan of Greek mythology who brought fire to humanity and was punished by Zeus by being chained to Mt. Caucasus where his liver was eaten by a vulture every day, and healed in the night. He was released from this suffering by Hercules.

The Secret Doctrine states that Prometheus represents the Pitis who awakened the mind principle in human beings during the Third Root Race. Thus, he is identical with Lucifer, the “light bearer.”
