The ancients were also upset by the more grotesque episodes of their mythology and interpreted the story of Saturn and his children allegorically. They understood the God as a representation of Time—Kronos equals Chronos. On this interpretation, favored by the Stoics, the bloody tale codes the home truth that Time devours everything.
