Cronos (Greek) / Saturn (Roman)

 Cronos/Saturn was a Titan, one of the elder gods, whose dominion was afterwards transferred to others. He was the father of Zeus (Jupiter/Jove) who eventually overthrew and then banished him

'Zeus the father decreed for certain of the heroes a stead at the world's end, far off from mortals, where reigneth Kronos.' - Hesiod 

'There is one island there (in Britain) where Cronus is a prisoner guarded by Briareus in his sleep .. sleep was the fetters designed for Cronus and many daimones are around him as servants and followers.' (Levi. P, 'A history of Greek Lit.)

'Kronos is imprisoned, with Briareus keeping guard over him as he sleeps, for as they put it sleep is the bond forged for Kronos.' - Plutarch

'The natives have a story that in one of these (islands) Cronus has been confined by Zeus, but that he, having a son for gaoler, is left sovereign lord of these islands ... Cronus himself sleeps within a deep cave resting on a rock which looks like gold .. Birds fly in at the topmost part of the rock, and bear him ambrosia, and the whole island is pervaded by the fragrance shed from the rock.' (Plutarch, Moralia XII.)

'Kronos, king of the blessed isles, is but another form .. of Apollo in the land of the Hyperboreans.' R.S.Loomis, 'Celtic Myth and Arthurian Romance' p.323

'We see clear traces in Welsh and Arthurian legend of the myth of Kronos as a god imprisoned on a North Atlantic island.' from 'Celtic Myth and Arthurian Romance
