The Golden Shoe

A myth submitted to the site by Samos

Olympus, Greece

There was once a god called Eprtumaas, who was a cobbler in the ancient Greece. He had made a golden shoe to trick the goddess Demeter who had blamed him for giving things to the under world.

He gave the shoe and Demeter was excited in joy and accepted it. Inside there was a fly which hissed all day night. Zeuz the king of the gods asked Demeter what it was.

While Eprtumaas was making some shoes for the gods, Apollo asked if he was the one who put a fly in Demeter's golden shoes. Despite the fact the he saw it, he told Zeus and who got furious with him for doing a mistake again. He was sent to live with Hades in the underworld for 5 years.

Once 5 years were finished he sent Hermes to go and collect him. He told him that he can be the brother of him and instead be the god of the humans. Eprtumaas agreed and thanked Zeuz for that and began the new life.
