A competing milky way story involves the Roman goddess Ops (Greek Rhea) and her husband Saturn and Jupiter.Greek:
The Greek name for the Milky Way (Γαλαξίας Galaxias) is derived from the Greek word for milk (γάλα, gala). One legend explains how the Milky Way was created by Heracles when he was a baby. His father, Zeus, was fond of his son, who was born of the mortal woman Alcmene. He decided to let the infant Heracles suckle on his divine wife Hera's milk when she was asleep, an act which would endow the baby with godlike qualities. When Hera woke and realized that she was breastfeeding an unknown infant, she pushed him away and the spurting milk became the Milky Way.
Another version of the myth is that Heracles (Roman Hercules) was abandoned in the woods by his mortal parents, Amphitryon and Alcmene. Heracles, son of Zeus and Alcmene, was naturally favored by his father, who sent Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom, to retrieve him. Athena, not being so motherly, decided to take him to Hera to suckle. Hera agreed to suckle Heracles As Heracles drinks the milk, he bites down, and Hera pushes him away in pain. The milk that squirts out forms the Milky Way.
All versions from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milky_Way_(mythology)Roman:
A story told by the Roman Hyginus in the Poeticon astronomicon (ultimately based on Greek myth) says that the milk came from the goddess Ops (Greek Rhea), or Opis, the wife of Saturn (Greek Cronus). Saturn swallowed his children to ensure his position as head of the Pantheon and sky god, and so Ops conceived a plan to save her newborn son Jupiter (Greek Zeus): She wrapped a stone in infant's clothes and gave it to Saturn to swallow. Saturn asked her to nurse the child once more before he swallowed it, and the milk that spurted when she pressed her nipple against the rock eventually became the Milky Way.
If you want to move beyond Wiki - there's an excellent discussion of Aion here (Uranos isn't underlined...because it isn't mentioned):

"This isn’t the first time Italy’s monuments have fallen victim to careless tourists."Two tourists in Cremona, northern Italy, are in hot water with police after breaking off a piece of the city's priceless statue of Hercules while trying to take a selfie.
The tourists had been climbing the 'Statue of the two Hercules' on Friday night when they involuntarily broke off a piece of the marble crown that sits on top of the monument, the Milan edition of Corriere della Sera reported.
By Sunday police had identified the two perpetrators. On Monday, technicians will assess the damages to the statue.
Situated under the portico of the 13th century Loggia dei Militi, the monument depicts two statues of Hercules holding a large shield. It is considered to be a symbol of Cremona itself, which is said to be founded by the mythological hero.
Completed in 1700, the statue was originally placed on top of the city gates before being moved to its current location in 1962.
