From wikipedia:

As a punishment from the gods for his trickery, Sisyphus was compelled to roll a huge rock up a steep hill, but before he reached the top of the hill the rock always escaped him and he had to begin again (Odyssey, xi. 593). Accordingly, pointless or interminable activities are often described as Sisyphean.
