GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

ELPIS

Greek Hope Goddess

Also known as HOPE

Goddess of Hope

Last seen clinging to the inside of PANDORA’s box.

Possibly a child of NYX or even ERIS, she’s a young lady deity usually portrayed optimistically holding a fresh flower. She always looks on the bright side and is a real comfort when things are looking bleak.

When the Romans came across her, they renamed her SPES and built several temples in her honor.
