Prometheus tormented by the eagle.
Prometheus (proh-MEE-thee-us or proh-MEE-thyoos). Titan; benefactor of humankind. Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to mortals, carrying it away from Mount Olympus in a fennel stalk (a method of transporting fire that was used down into historical times). As a consequence, Zeus chained Prometheus to a rock where each day an eagle pecked out his liver (which regenerated itself each night).

The killer was among the dead.McNamee said the degrees will be awarded during the regular graduation ceremonies the slain students would have participated in with their friends.With classes set to resume on Monday, McNamee said university officials will be working hard to help ease students back into the classrooms, if they are ready."We are going to encourage them very strongly to continue in their classes but to do it in the context of what they are capable of handling in the current circumstances," he said.The university will offer students several options on how to complete their courses, and will consider awarding a grade based on work already completed, he said
