GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

HEMERA

Greek Daytime Goddess

Also known as HEMERE

Goddess of Daytime and Daylight

Her ‘Who’s Who’ entry informs us that she is the daughter of EREBUS and NYX and is the mother of THALASSA.

Her pedigree goes right back to CHAOS and she was the first Goddess of the Day. Every morning she pulls away the dark curtains of EREBUS to let her brother AETHER’s light shine forth.
