Thessaly]." Deucalion and Pyrrha had at least two children, Hellen and Protogenea, and possibly a third, Amphictyon (who is Autochthonous in other traditions).Their children as apparently named in one of the oldest texts, Catalogue of Women, include daughters Pandora and Thyia, and at least one son, Hellen.He was told to cover your head and throw the bones of your mother behind your shoulder.Deucalion and Pyrrha understood that "mother" is Gaia, the mother of all living things, and the "bones" to be rocks.Chronography provided a framework for writing about the past when no absolute system for time reckoning existed.From the fifth century BCE on, chronological lists began to be written and were sometimes displayed on stone: lists of kings (such as the Spartan and the Athenian ones), of magistrates (Athenian archons, Spartan ephors), of priests (the list of priestesses of Hera in Argos, compiled by Hellanicus, and the stephanophoroi at Miletus), and of victors (at the Carnean festival in Sparta, compiled by Hellanicus; at the Pythian festival, compiled by Aristotle and Callisthenes, and at Olympia, by Hippias of Elis).
Finally, for most years noted—and not all years were—more than a single event was mentioned.
John Lemprière, in Bibliotheca Classica, notes that as the story was re-told in later versions, it accumulated details from the stories of Noah and Moses: "Thus Apollodorus gives Deucalion a great chest as a means of safety; Plutarch speaks of the pigeons by which he sought to find out whether the waters had retired; and Lucian of the animals of every kind which he had taken with him.
&c." For some time during the Middle Ages, many European Christian scholars continued to accept Greek mythical history at face value, thus asserting that Deucalion's flood was a regional flood, that occurred a few centuries later than the global one survived by Noah's family.
Deucalion, with the aid of his father Prometheus, was saved from this deluge by building a chest.
Like the Biblical Noah and the Mesopotamian counterpart Utnapishtim, he uses his device to survive the deluge with his wife, Pyrrha.
