Deucalion, the Noah of classical mythology, who, when Zeus drowned the world, entered into a ship, and after floating for many days landed on Mount Parnassus. He was accompanied by his wife Pyrrha, and the pair being bidden by Themis to re-people the world by casting behind them the bones of their mother, solved the riddle by casting stones from mother earth. Those cast by Deucalion became men, those by Pyrrha women. Deucalion was son of Prometheus, and father of Hellen, the founder of the Hellenic race.
