What happened to Atlas in mythology?

well, after the hero Perseus got through slaying the gorgon, Medusa, he rested in the garden of the Hespirides for the night. Atlas was warned that one day a son of Zeus would steal a golden apple from his tree, Atlas assumed that Perseus was the hero of the prophecy, although Perseus WAS a son of Zeus, the prophecy wasn't mentioning Perseus. Perseus saw Atlas and the two began to fight, after fighting for a while, Perseus brought out the head of Medusa, which turned Atlas to stone, and making him a tall mountain, which we know today, as the Atlas Mtns.

What is the mythological meaning of atlas?

The Atlas mountains are a range in north west africa, these days stretching over a territory which includes Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. In Greek myth Atlas was one of the Titans (earth-born giants) who attempted to overthrow the gods in a prehistoric battle called the titanomachy. When the titans were defeated Atlas was condemned to stand at the end of the earth (the north-west African coast was the end of the known world to the ancient Greek) holding up the sky. Atlas later quarreled with Perseus, and Perseus turned Atlas into a rock (the Atlas mountains) by waving the head of the Medusa in his face.
