Unbegotten Son

Unbegotten Son Orion Hyria, that hospitable land which entertained the gods, named after hospitable Hyrieus; where that huge giant born of no marriage-bed, threefather Orion, sprang up from his mother earth, after a shower of piss from three gods grew in generative fruitfulness to the selfmade shape of a child, having impregnated a wrinkled of fruitful oxhide. Then a hollow of the earth was made midwife to earth’s unbegotten son. - Nonnus, Dionysiaca 13.96 http://www.theoi.com/Gigante/GiganteOrion.html
