The Yo Yo showed up for the first time in recorded history in Ancient Greece.  Since they attribute everything to their Pantheon, I went back to the very first gifts ever crafted and given from one god to another... Zeus' Thunderbolts, Hades Helm and Poseidon's Trident.  These three gifts were crafted for the three brother gods to take on and defeat the Titans.  The craftsmen were the 3 brother Cyclops (cyclopae) Brontes, Steropes and Arges who were blacksmiths.  The tools of their trade are shown in the outer border.

The Grecian style border is an actual copy of the very first depiction of the Yo Yo held by a Greek child.
