Cronus thinking it was the baby swallowed the stone whole. During this Rhea took her baby to Crete, and there, in a cave on Mount Dicte, the divine goat Amaltheia fed and raised Zeus. When Zeus had grown into a young man he left the cave and returned to his father’s lands, and with the help of Gaia, tricked Cronus to vomit the five children he had already ate. This then led to war and Zeus led the attack against his father and the Titans.
