Eos is the daughter of Hyperion and Theia. Married to Tithon, she conceives Memnon and Emathion. Having had Ares as her lover, she suffers the wrath of Aphrodite who condemns her to always be in love. Personification of the Dawn, every morning, she leaves Tithon's bed, and on her chariot rises towards the sky to announce to the gods the coming of her brother Helios, the Sun. Conversely, in the evening, she descends from Olympus to reach her home, accompanied by the Hours.
