But we all should know that mythology uses contradictory, or at least inconsistent, versions of the same story, to express alternative perspectives something else process, rather than “a lie”. 

The important of the death of Zeus is that the story emerges exactly from the point in time and cultural transformation in which Zeus is also born and that time it was familiar for a vegetative god, representing nature blooming in spring and dying in autumn, to die and be re-born within the immortality of the eternal round of the year or yearly daemon.
