   I don't believe he is the victim of the first "sin."  Rather, he is the victim of the first sacrifice.  There was certainly a touch of hesitation about sacrifice in Greece and in late Vedism/Hinduism (to the point where Hinduism spiritualized the act completely), but I don't get the feeling that it was a "sin."  After all, if the gods want you to do it, how can it be a sin?
