Eurynome

Eurynome

Eurynome was a Titan goddess in Greek mythology, daughter of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys, hence an Oceanid. She was the third wife of Zeus, with whom she had the three Charites, goddesses of grace. When Hephaestus was thrown off Mount Olympus by his mother Hera for being crippled, Eurynome and Thetis caught him and raised him. Eurynome may also have been a goddess of pasturelands.

She was also often linked to another Eurynome, who was an early Queen of the Titans alongside her husband, Ophion. This couple fought against Cronus and Rhea and lost the throne to them.
