(Greek Deity) HESPERUS

Also known as HE'SPERUS, HESPEROS
Greek God of : Venus the evening Star
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Son of dawn goddess Eos and the mortal Cephalus.

Hesperus is God of the Evening Star, Venus at nightime, and another candidate as father of the HESPERIDES.

His brother is PHOSPHEROS, Venus in the morning, who was fathered by Astraeus. It seems Eos was a bit of a loose bird.

Hesperus was a brain box and his kindness towards mankind ensured he received god-like worship and the bestest offerings and sacrifices. Obviously the gods weren't in the least bit pleased about this, as he was actually a Titan, so while he was climbing Mount Atlas one day a ferocious wind was rustled up and Hesperus was whisked away.

No-one knows who was responsible as none of the gods have stepped forward, but Zeus prevented this nasty 'accident' from becoming a fatality when he lifted Hesperus into the sky out of harms way. Guilty conscience maybe?
