Question 328: Fertility of Futility

His name is an eponym, meaning "endless and unavailing, as labor or a task." he was famed as being the craftiest of men, who escaped the underworld by tricking Persephone, but was brought back by Hermes

His punishment by Zeus was to roll a hug rock uphill, but before he could reach the summit, it would roll back down, forcing him to begin again.

Who is he?
