The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

CHIONE

Greek Snow Goddess

Also known as KHIONE

Goddess of Snow

This delightful deity 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.
