Greek Mythology Wiki

Mimas was A Gigantes who Aphrodite originally fought against. Mimas who according to Apollodorus was slain by Hephaistos when the god threw a volley of molten iron in the war against the gods. After that he was finished off by Herakles

There is some controversy about whether Mimas and another Gigante Mimon (who was killed with the combined efforts of Ares and Herakles) Euripides suggests that it was a bolt of lightning from Zeus that killed Mimas by a bolt of lightning which leads to further contrivercy. 

Further contrevercy occurs because the name Mimos is enscribed at the Acropolis, this however has been almost exckusively viewed as a spelling error for the name Mimas.
