"EOS was the rosy-fingered goddess of the dawn. She and her siblings Helios (the Sun) and Selene (the Moon) were numbered amongst the second-generation Titan gods. Eos rose into the sky from the river Okeanos (Oceanus) at the start of each day, and with her rays of light dispersed the mists of night.
She was depicted either driving a chariot drawn by winged horses or borne aloft on her own wings.
Eos had an unquenchable desire for handsome young men, some say as the result of a curse laid upon her by the goddess Aphrodite."
