Lemnos, according to legend, is the island of Hephaestus. It is said that his father Zeus threw him there, because he was taking the side of his mother Hera every time his parents were arguing. The residents of the island found him and treated him.  As a return, Hephaestus taught them how to work metal. Hephaestus founded a laboratory in the island for creating weapons for the gods and various items for people.
