"HEGEMONE" WAS A VERY PRIMITIVE GREEK GODDESS OF THE SOIL AND GROWING PLANTS, SPECIFICALLY MAKING THEM BLOOM AND BEAR FRUIT. HER NAME MEANS "MASTERY" AND STILL SURVIVES TODAY AS THE WORD FOR "SOVEREIGNTY--HEGEMONY". "ZEUS" IS USUALLY IDENTIFIED AS HER FATHER. THE IDENTITY OF HER MOTHER CHANGES WITH THE STORY, BUT SHE IS USUALLY SAID TO BE THE GODDESS, "EURYNOME. "

SADLY, "HEGEMONE "DISAPPEARED SO EARLY THAT NO RECORD HAS BEEN FOUND HER INDEPENDENT WORSHIP (WE KNOW ONLY OF HER AFTER SHE BECAME ONE OF THE "CHARITIES") AND NO MYTH ABOUT HER SURVIVES, AND WHILE WHAT WE DO KNOW OF HER COMES FROM THE GREEKS, IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT HER ORIGINS ARE OLDER.

TODAY SHE SURVIVES AS ONE OF THE IRREGULAR RETROGRADE MOONS OF JUPITER, DISCOVERED IN 2003 AND NAMED IN 2005.
