Aurora

Aurora

(Gr. Εώς), in Greek and Roman mythology, is the goddess of twilight, who brings up the light of day from the east. She was the daughter of the Titan Hyperion and. his sister Theia, or his sister Euryphaeessa. She was sister to Helios (God of the Sun) and to Selene (goddess of the moon). She is the constant companion of the god of the sun, opening the golden door with rosy fingers and strewing roses in his path. By Astrseus she was mother of the winds Zephyr, Boreas, and Notus, and also of Hesperus and of the constellations. Besides this, she favored four mortals and gave birth by them to children. The first was Orion, whose love she only had for a short time, as Diana slew him with her arrows; another was Clitus, son of Mantius, whom she brought to the place of the immortal gods because of his beauty; a third was" Tithonus, the son of Laomedon, king of Troy; the fourth was Cephalus, whom she abducted from his wife Procris and later returned again, and by whom she had a son, Phaethon.
