I shall create To replace them, Zeus created a third race of men. They were made of bronze, and this began the Bronze Age. The bronze men were aggressive and warlike. They destroyed each other with such venom that Zeus quickly hid these away in the underworld too.
I shall create these were made of silver. The silver men were foolish and had no respect for the gods. This was the Silver Age, in which nothing was sacred- it did not last long.
Zeus then made a race of heroes, who were the subjects of most of the countless myths in the Hellenic tradition. This was the heroic age, and there were many great men and women born of it. When a hero died, he was given a special place in the underworld, called the Blessed Isles, where it is always light and beautiful. The men of the heroic age, too, passed away and gave rise to men of today. The race that lives now is the iron race; which is said to be the hardest of all. Men of the Iron Age must toil all their lives and suffer and die. But the iron men are the strongest of all and will survive the Olympian gods.
