Elpis was the personification of hope in Greek mythology, the daughter of the primordial deity Nyx. She was the mother of Pheme, goddess of fame and rumour. She was usually represented as a young lady bearing flowers or a cornucopia. Elpis did not play a major role in the Greek myths, except the myth of Pandora, in which she remained locked in the box when Pandora open it and unleashed all bad things in the world. Hope was not an important aspect for ancient Greeks, who sometimes perceived it as negative.
