Autumn is a time of golds, so let’s have some Greek mythology to boot.
So supposedly Perseus was born after Zeus visited his mother, princess Danae, as a shower of gold. At least Perseus seems to have lucked out ducking under Hera’s attention, unlike Hercules. OTOH he did get a bit of a rougher start, between Danae’s father King Acrisius locking her up in the first place and then dumping them both in the sea so that if they died the Furies would blame Poseidon, not him. Nice guy. Drat those Oracle of Delphi prophesies about sons killing their father.
…And then it all goes sideways for the guy anyways decades later, when Perseus accidentally hit him with a discus.
Though you could say Acrisius got off easy with just death by accident. Laius, father of Oedipus, effectively died from a road rage incident. 😉
(Those crazy Greeks….)
