Hellenic Mythology - Nyx - Parthenogenesis Picture


In Greek mythology, Nyx (Νύξ, "night", Nox in Roman translation) was the 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. Homer also named her the subduer of Gods and Men and relates that even Zeus himself stood in awe of her. In the Ancient Cosmogenies she was one of the first created beings for she is described as the daughter of Chaos and sister of Erebus.
By Parthenogenesis (Virgin Birth) she created many beings, some of which are:
Eris: Goddess of Strife or Spite.
Nemesis: Goddess of Retribution.
Moros: God of Doom.
Oizys: Goddess of Misery.
Momos: God of Blame, Mockery.
Hypnos: God of Sleep.
Thanatos: God of Death.
Geras: God of Old Age.
The Keres: The Fates of Death.
