Camp (2)

Camp, in Greek mythology was a monster stationed in Tartarus, to guard the Cemeteries and Cyclops imprisoned there by Uranus. When Jupiter was advised by his mother and Metis to get the means where, by he might master his father he was promised the help of the Cyclops and of the hundred-armed-giants: if he would liberate them; therefore he killed' Campe and liberated them. When Bacchus journeyed through Libya, he erected a tent near Zabirnma; here he slew an earth-born monster which bore the same name as the above (others say it was identical with it), and had killed many of the inhabitants. He piled up a great hill over' the carcass, as a monument to his courage.
