CHIONE
Also known as KHIONE

Goddess of Snow. Sits in the heavens and sprinkles the flakes over the Earth.

She's the daughter of BOREAS, the windy God of Winter, and his frozen wife OREITHYIA.

CHIONE is also the name of a beautiful lady fancied by APOLLO and HERMES. They both managed to sneak into her bed under false pretences. By APOLLO she gave birth to musical PHILAMMON, and her son by HERMES was the sneaky AUTOLYCUS.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Chione graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Chione movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Chione statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Chione. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
