(the giants aren't considered to be gods, but since they're mentioned in
their stories, I'll include them)


*Agrius* - According to Apollodorus, he was killed by the Moirai (Fates)
with bronze clubs.

*Alcyoneus* - According to Apollodorus, he was (along with Porphyrion), the
greatest of the Giants. Immortal while fighting in his native land, he was
dragged from his homeland and killed by Heracles. According to Pindar, he
was a herdsman and, in a separate battle from the Gigantomachy, he was
killed by Heracles and Telamon, while they were traveling through Phlegra.
Representations of Heracles fighting Alcyoneus are found on many sixth
century BC and later works of art.

*Alektos/Allektos* - Named on the late sixth century Siphnian Treasury
(Alektos), and the second century BC Pergamon Altar (Allektos).
