In Greek mythology, two giants piled Mount Pelion on Ossa, another mountain in Thessaly, in order to scale Olympus, but Apollo killed the giants before they could make the attempt. Pelion was also the legendary home of Centaurs. The ship Argo of the Argonauts allegedly was built of wood from the mountain’s trees.
