Atlas led the Titanes in a rebellion against Zues and was condemned to bear the heavens upon his shoulders. He was said to have been appointed guardian of the pillars which held earth and sky asunder. He was also the god who instructed mankind in the art of astronomy, a tool which was used by sailors in navigation and farmers in measuring the seasons. Atlas became the god who turned the heavens on their axis, causing the stars to revolve.
