|The ALOADS, listed below, organized their own attack against heaven on another occasion (see Zeus). Other GIANTS mentioned in the list do not seem to have participated in the famous revolt (see also Gaia for more detailed parentage)
Agrius 2. Son of Gaia. Agrius 2 was killed by the MOERAE with brazen clubs (Apd.1.6.1-2, Hes.The.183ff.).
Agrius 6. Son of a bear and Polyphonte.
Polyphonte did not honored Aphrodite and for that reason the goddess made her conceive a passion for a bear. Like his brother Orius 3, he was a powerful giant who did not honour the gods and who devoured men. Was turned into a vulture by Hermes (Lib.Met.21).
Alcyoneus 1. Son of Gaia. A giant who was
immortal so long as he fought in the land of his
birth. He was killed by Heracles 1 who dragged him out of Pallene, the land of his birth, after shooting him with an arrow (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183 ff.; Nonn.48.22; Pin.Isth.6.33).
ALOADS. Sons either of Poseidon and Iphimedia, or of Aloeus 1 and Iphimedia. These are the Giants Ephialtes 2 and Otus 1, who sought to pull down heaven with their bare hands, and to overthrow Zeus. The ALOADS grew every
year a cubit in breadth and a fathom in height.
When they were nine years old, being nine cubits
broad and nine fathoms high, they resolved to fight
against the gods. So they set Mount Ossa on Olympus
and Pelion on Ossa, threatening by means of these
mountains to ascend up to heaven. They also said
that by filling up the sea with the mountains they
would make it dry land, and the land they would
make sea. They were killed by Apollo (see also Zeus) (Apd.1.7.4; Hes.CWE.6; Hom.Od.11.305ff.; Hyg.Fab.28; Pau.9.22.6; Pin.Pyth.4.89; QS.1.516ff.; Stat.Theb.6.719; Vir.Aen.6.582ff.).
Alpus. Son of Gaia. Alpus revolted
against the gods and was killed by Dionysus 2 (Nonn.25.238, 45.174).
Clytius 6. 8707: Overkrop af giganten Klytios? Pergamon, Zeus alterets østfrise. Graesk hellenistisk 170-155 f.Kr. Berlin Staatliche Museen (Royal Cast Collection, Copenhagen).
Chthonius 4. Son of Gaia. One of the GIANTS
whom Hera goaded to battle
against Dionysus 2. He
was promised Aphrodite for doing so (Nonn.48.10ff.).
Clytius 6. Son of Gaia. During the revolt
against the gods he was killed by Hecate with torches (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.).
Damasen. Son of Gaia. This giant, who was
nursed by Eris, once killed a serpent which was restored to life by another serpent, its female partner, with the help of a lifegiving herb (Nonn.25.486).
Enceladus 2. Son of Gaia. This is one of the
GIANTS who attacked the OLYMPIANS. Athena threw the island of Sicily on him (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.; Nonn.48.22; Vir.Aen.3.578).
Ephialtes 1. Son of Gaia. Ephialtes 1 revolted against the gods and was shot by Apollo in his left eye
and by Heracles 1 in his right (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.).
Eurytus 7. Son of Gaia. One of those GIANTS
who revolted against the OLYMPIANS. He was
killed by Dionysus 2 with a thyrsus (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.).
Gration. Son of Gaia. Gration revolted
against the gods and was killed by Artemis (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.)
Hippolytus 3. Son of Gaia. Another subversive
giant. Was killed by Hermes, who was wearing Hades' helmet (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.).
Hopladamus. This giant was enlisted by Rhea 1 when she was
pregnant with Zeus, as an
ally against Cronos (Pau.8.36.2).
Mimas 1. Son of Gaia. Another giant who
defied the OLYMPIANS.
Was killed by Hephaestus with
missiles of red-hot metal. But some say he was
killed by Ares (Apd.1.6.1-2; Arg.3.1226; Hes.The.183ff.).
Orius 3. Son of a bear and Polyphonte, and brother of Agrius 2 (see above). Orius 3 was, like his brother Agrius 6, a powerful giant who did not honour the gods and who devoured men. He was turned into a bird by Hermes (Lib.Met.21).
Pallas 4. Son of Gaia. Another giant who
fought against the gods. He was killed by Athena, who flayed him and used his skin to shield her own body (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.).
Peloreus. Son of Gaia. One of the GIANTS who
incited by Hera fought against Dionysus 2 (Nonn.48.10ff, 48.39).
Polybotes. Son of Gaia. Revolted against the OLYMPIANS and was
killed by Poseidon, who broke a piece off the island of Cos and threw it on him (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.; Pau.1.2.4).
Porphyrion 1. Son of Gaia. Of him it is said
that he tore Hera's robes
and wanted to rape her. It is also said that he was
promised Hebe as his wife
by Hera if he would fight Dionysus 2. Zeus smote him with a
thunderbolt and Heracles 1 shot him dead with an arrow (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.; Nonn.48.20).
Thoas 5. Son of Gaia. During the revolt
against the gods, he was killed by the MOERAE, with brazen clubs (Apd.1.6.1-2; Hes.The.183ff.).

fought against Heracles 1 (Pau.3.18.11).
Typhoeus 2. Son of Gaia. A younger Typhoeus in all parts like the older (Typhoeus 1, that is Typhon), who fought against Dionysus 2 (for Typhon see Zeus) (Nonn.48.10ff, 48.77).
