    I understand.
    In context of cannibalism, any source that illustrates a form of cannibalism in days of old is useful.

    Perhaps we have a translation problem here?
    Perhaps ate is the wrong word
    ingested, consumed, taken inside much like a papa seahorse?... etc---(Jonah and the whale?)
    maybe it has to do with not giving one's children their freedom until forced to do so
    his dad tried to keep his children from being born
    too damned domineering?

    when i eat something, and regurgitate it---it ain't alive and could not be whole
    (though I have read about people who swallow live goldfish)

    I proposed this to a classics professor at my last university and he said NO
    It seems that the confusion was supported by Plutarch who had a tendency to sensationalism and tailored his speech to his perception of his audience?

    absent Plutarch, the only reference to time as/re Kronus seems to have been; as in, you cannot undo the past(time is a one way street).

    But it illustrates the fluid aspects of mythology (including religious history). It seems to depend on which country and early culture you look at.
    Here is yet another account of, perhaps intended confusion, who is who doing what.

    Name and etymology[edit]

    Chronos and His Child by Giovanni Francesco Romanelli, National Museum in Warsaw, a 17th-century depiction of Titan Cronus as "Father Time," wielding a harvesting scythe

    17th century = 2-3kyrs(+) after the story was told?

    Perhaps, that should read: "wielding a castrating scythe" ?

    What did that harvesting scythe harvest?
    Perhaps the sperm that created Aphrodite
