Where it fell, Erichthonius was born, and Athena kept him secret in a box. She gave the box to the three daughters of Cecrops and told them not to open the box. Curious, the three daughters opened it and saw the infant wrapped around a serpent. Driven mad by what they saw, they fell off the Acropolis. The goddess took some wool to wipe it away and threw it on the ground. Out of that semen, Erichthonius was born. Athena decided to raise him secretly and hid him in a box. The goddess gave the box to the daughters of King Cecrops of Athens, and told them to keep the box shut.
