Hellenistic Mysteries #3 – Page 16 – The Rescue of Hera

Zeus’ potion continues to do its work as Cronus ejects his 5th child.

I’ll admit that I have some problems with this scene.  Supposedly, Cronus should be heaving up what he’s swallowed in reverse order, but I had the birth orders mixed up earlier and now the children are likewise appearing in the wrong order.  From the surviving myths, Poseidon actually should have been the 5th child.  All three goddesses, Demeter, Hestia and Hera were born first.  It’s been many years since I wrote the scripts and I can’t remember why this is the case.  I’m going to guess that I just didn’t know the right order when I wrote it.
