Tantalize

Mythological Dictionary

Tantalus, who through hybris tried to feed the gods human flesh, is punished by being in a state of perpetual thirst and hunger, food and drink always just beyond his reach. To tantalize is therefore to tease and tempt without satisfaction. See sisyphean and tartarean.
