Pandora \Pan*do"ra\, prop. n. [L., fr. Gr. Pandw`ra; pa^s, pa^n,
all + dw^ron a gift.]
1. (Class. Myth.) A beautiful woman (all-gifted), whom
Jupiter caused Vulcan to make out of clay in order to
punish the human race, because Prometheus had stolen the
fire from heaven. Jupiter gave Pandora a box containing
all human ills, which, when the box was opened, escaped
and spread over the earth. Hope alone remained in the box.
Another version makes the box contain all the blessings of
the gods, which were lost to men when Pandora opened it.
2. (Zo["o]l.) A genus of marine bivalves, in which one valve
is flat, the other convex.
