As Gedi said, the only "real" colossus was the Colossus of Rhodes. Looking at general history of colossus it does have its origin in Greece. But
it's only gigantic statues, and not a living being, not even according to any myths. The bigger than life-size statues were normally of kings but
could also be of gods and private individuals. These statues usually flanked the gates or pylons of temples. Believed to act as intermediaries between
men and the gods.
Thus, technically speaking Sony is a bit off with their name "Shadow of the Colossus"... The name means "Shadow of the Giant Stone Statues of dead
Kings".... LoL... Nothing about gigantic creatures and battling them...
Well, that's my opinion anyways.
