Eos (Dawn)

Name: Eos (Dawn)

Watches over: The Dawn

Resides in: The Edge of Oceanus (The Ocean which surrounds the World)

Symbol: None

Offspring of: Hyperion and Theia

Consort: Orion, Astraeus, Tithonus, Cephalus, Zeus

Sibling of: Helios (The Sun) and Selene (The Moon)

Children: The Anemoi (Winds)

Lets say you’re a young, attractive mortal male. Well you should watch your back because chances are, Eos wants you. Well actually, you shouldn’t be that concerned as her beauty was said to be supernatural. Eos had an unquenchable desire for handsome young men, as the result of a curse laid upon her by the goddess Aphrodite out of jealousy. The dawn goddess and second generation Titan, Eos with “rosy fingers” opened the gates of heave n so that Helios (The All-Seeing Sun), her brother, could ride his chariot across the sky every day. In Homer, her saffron-colored robe is embroidered or woven with flowers; rosy-fingered and with golden arms, she is pictured on Attic vases as a beautiful woman, crowned with a tiara and with the large white-feathered wings of a bird. Her Roman equivalent is Aurora.
