ARODAMA FAMILY AND THE MYTH
According to a myth, when the first Titans were born, the goddess of life, in order to restore balance to the universe and to protect her daughter Earth, bestowed upon her the tree of life. The tree gave life to Earth and to the Gods. Upon the birth of each deity the tree sprouted a new shoot, "Arodamos." This loving shoot became ambrosia for the gods, which when eaten made them immortal.
In another myth, the god Hephaestus knowing the secret, asked the goddess Athena to create springs of water in the area that surrounded the tree of life as gift to Hercules so he could rest after each of his labours. The secret of the tree was well kept by the gods of Olympus, but in the battle with the Titans the tree was lost... so the myth says.
