According to Hesiod, as part of the punishment for Prometheus giving the gift of fire to humanity, an angry Zeus ordered Hephaestus to mold from earth Pandora, as a way to have her descendents torment humanity. Pandora is best known for Pandora’s box (likely more of a funerary jar) that released all of the evils of humanity when it opened, with only Hope left inside when she closed it.
