The Protogenoi Picture

In Greek mythology the Prôtogenoi are a genealogy of primordial Greek gods, the name literally means "first born" or "primeval" and are a group of deities born in the beginning of our universe.

The Prôtogenoi are the first entities or beings that came into existence. They form the very fabric of our universe and as such are immortal, they are a group of gods from which all the other gods descend.

    Phanes - The New Life Was the mystic primeval deity of procreation and the generation of new life, Phanes was believed to have been hatched from the World-Egg of Time and Necessity.

    Aether - The Air He is the personification of the upper sky, space, and heaven, and is the elemental god of the "Bright, Glowing, Upper Air." He is the pure upper air that the gods breathe, as opposed to the normal air mortals breathe.

    Physis - The Nature Related to the growth of plants, animals, and other features of the world as they tend to develop without external influence.

    Hemera - The Day Goddess of daytime. According to the Theogony, Hemera left Tartarus just as Nyx entered it; when Hemera returned, Nyx left. (Day and Night)

    Nyx - The Night Primordial goddess of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of personified gods such as Hypnos (sleep) and Thánatos (death). Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty.

    Ourea - The Mountain Like Uranus, and Pontus, were parthenogetic offspring of Gaia alone. The Greeks rarely personified an individual mountain; an exception might be Tmolus, both a king and a mountain in Lydia. Each mountain was said to have its own local nymph, an oread.

    Nesoi - The Island Goddess of islands. Each island was said to have its own personification.

    Chronos - The Time The personification of time. He and his consort, serpentine Ananke (primordial goddess of inevitability), circled the primal world-egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky.

    Tartarus - The Abyss Below Uranus, Gaia, and Pontus is Tartarus, a deep, gloomy place, a pit, or an abyss used as a dungeon of torment and suffering that resides beneath the underworld.

    Pontus - The Ocean Personification of the ocean, son of Gaia, who brought forth him out of herself, without coupling.

    Gaia - The Earth Primal goddess personifying the Earth, the Greek version of "Mother Nature" or the Earth Mother. Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Terra Mater or Tellus, and considered a Mother Titan or Great Titan. Hesiod's Theogony tells how, after the birth of Chaos, arose broad-breasted Gaia, the everlasting foundation of the gods of Olympus. She brought forth Uranus, the starry sky, her equal, to cover her, the hills (Ourea), and the fruitless deep of the Sea, Pontus, "without sweet union of love," out of her own self through parthenogenesis.

    Uranus - The Sky In Greek mythology, Uranus, or Father Sky, is personified as the son and husband of Gaia, Mother Earth, ancestors of most of the Greek gods.
