Pandora's Box

Pandora's Box

Pandora's Box
is a concept in Greek mythology that is comparable to the "Original Sin" of Adam and Eve in Judeo-Christian theology - though it is based on the morals and religious values of ancient Greece rather than the Abrahamic religions.

Pandora's Box was an artifact that was once opened by Pandora unleashed all the suffering currently in the world - Pandora closed the pithos in an effort to stop the corruption, but in the process only served to contain "hope", which lay at the bottom of the box.

The "box" is said that it is a treasure chest of some sort to some while it was actually a large jar to others. Two of these descriptions of the legend are somewhat contradicting.
