Athena, Aphrodite, iceberg.

Aphrodite, OTOH, sprang from the foam on the ocean that billowed up after Ouranos' genitalia were lopped off by Kronos and thrown in. I never did understand Botticelli putting her on the halfshell. Something to do with Santiago as a slogan and les coquilles Saint Jacques no doubt.

As did the iceberg, IIRC.

The lechuga or the the tip off the glacier?

Athene's mother was Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory. Zeus was told that if Mnemosyne had a son, he would dethrone Zeus as Zeus had his father, the aforesaid Chronos. So when Mnemosyne became pregnant, Zeus turned her into a fly and swallowed her.

I don't know why he swallowed that fly.
Perhaps he'll die.

I would use glossalgia for pain in the tongue without stimulus, and glossodynia for pain caused by some form of stimulation which would not usually cause pain. But that's just me.
