The stories of Greek Gods and Goddesses have always been enchanting for the readers. EOS is yet another famous name in the generation tree of the Titans. She was the second generation of Gods and had a life full of saddening events. Some interesting facts about the famous Greek Goddess are presented here to give you a clear picture of EOS.
EOS is the second generation carrying the blood of the Titan Gods, in Greek Mythology. She is said to be the Goddess of Dawn (T.B.B, 2012).
EOS is linked with the myth of Creation, the creation of Dawn (T.B.B, 2012)!
Greek and Roman mythology goes side by side; EOS is paralleled with Aurora in the Roman myths (Gill, n.d)!
EOS is said to have been unusually attracted towards handsome young men due to a curse laid upon her by the goddess Aphrodite (C.H.B, n.d).
The dew drops are believed to be EOS’s tears since the day she lost her son in Trojan War (C.H.B, n.d).
EOS’s courtship mostly occurred with the mortals, the non-gods (Patel, 2011).
An interesting fact about EOS is that despite being kind, she locked away her first husband Tithonus so that no one could see him because with passing age and time he had become an unpleasant figure (Patel, 2011).
Having both of her sons killed, EOS is said to be weeping for eternity so that there is never going to be a shortage on the presence of dew over the greens (Allen and Saunders, 2006).
The total number of children that EOS bore is 8, and all of these were a result of her affairs with mortals (Atsma, 2000).
On the whole, EOS is considered to be the most blessed of all gods by being gifted to be the mother of four winds and a responsibility of awakening the earth at dawn (E.B, 2008).
