Polybotes was one of the Gigantes in Greek mythology, the children of the Titans Uranus and Gaea. The Gigantes emerged from the earth (Gaea) when Uranus was castrated by his son Cronus and his blood fell onto the soil. During the Gigantomachy, the great battle that happened between the Olympian gods and the Gigantes, he fought against Poseidon, and he was eventually crushed under Nisyros, a part of the island of Kos that Poseidon broke off and threw against him.
