"(AS EOS FIRST SPREAD HER YELLOW ROBE ACROSS THE EARTH, THUNDER-LOVING ZEUS ANNOUNCED AN ASSEMBLY OF THE GODS ON THE HIGHEST CREST OF MANY-RIDGED OLYMPUS.) HOMER'S ILIAD"

EOS WAS THE GREEK GODDESS OF THE DAWN; SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF THE TITANS, JYPERIOD AND THEIA AND THE SISTER OF HELIOS (SUN) AND SELENE (MOON). WHILE ALL OF THE OTHER GODS AND MORTALS WERE FAST ASLEEP, IT WAS EOS WHO ROSE AND AWAKENED THE EARTH BY MOUNTING HER CHARIOT AND RISING FROM THE EAST TO PERFORM HER DUTY OF ANNOUNCING THE APPROACH OF HER BROTHER, HELIOS.

SHE WAS AN INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN WITH ROSE-COLORED FINGERS WHO WAS CROWNED WITH A TIARA AND THE LARGE FEATHERED WINGS OF A BIRD. INDEED, IT WAS THROUGH EOS THAT OUR VISION OF THE CHRISTIAN ANGELS WAS FORMED. ACCORDING TO THE TALES, SHE WAS FREE WITH HER FAVORS AND HAD MANY CONSORTS...AMONG THE TITANS AND THE MORTALS. ONE MORNING AS EOS LOOKED UPON THE EARTH, SHE SAW A YOUNG MAN, TITHONIS, JUST AWAKENING FROM HIS SLUMBER...AND IMMEDIATELY SHE WAS SMITTEN.

TITHONIS ONCE, THE TALE WAS, ROSE-ARMED DAWN,

LOVE SMITTEN, CARRIED OFF TO THE WORLD'S END.

HANDSOME AND YOUNG THEN, YET IN TIME GREY AGE

O'ERTOOK HIM, HUSBAND OF IMMORTAL WIFE.

--SAPPHO 4TH CENTURY


SHE WONDERED, THOUGH, HOW IT COULD BE BECAUSE HE WAS JUST A HUMAN...AND SHE A GREAT IMMORTAL GODDESS. SO, WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR HELIOS TO DRIVE HIS CHARIOT ACROSS THE SKY, EOS WENT TO ZEUS AND PLEADED WITH HIM TO GIFT TITHONIS WITH ETERNAL LIFE. ZEUS GRANTED HER WISH, AND EOS BROUGHT TITHONIS TO HER PALACE IN THE EAST WHERE THEY SPENT MANY HAPPY YEARS TOGETHER.

BUT, THIS WAS NOT DESTINED TO LAST, FOR ALTHOUGH TITHONIS HAD ETERNAL LIFE, EOS HAD FORGOTTEN TO ASK ZEUS FOR ETERNAL YOUTH; SLOWLY, THE PRINCE BEGAN TO SHOW THE SIGNS OF AGING. EOS WAS MORTIFIED AS HIS HAIR TURNED WHITE, AND EVENTUALLY HE LOST THE POWER OF HIS LIMBS. SHE SHUT HIM INTO HIS ROOM, BUT HIS FEEBLE VOICE COULD STILL BE HEARD. EVENTUALLY, HE GREW MORE AND MORE ANCIENT, SHRIVELING UP UNTIL ONE DAY TURNING INTO A GRASSHOPPER.

TITHONIS AND EOS HAD TWO SONS--MEMNON AND EMATHION, AND MEMNON, WHO HAD BECOME AN ETHIOPIAN KING, GATHERED AN ARMY AND WENT OFF TO FIGHT IN THE TROJAN WAR. A LONG BATTLE ENSUED BETWEEN HIM AND ACHILLES. EVENTUALLY, MEMNON FELL, AND THE TROJANS FLED IN DISMAY. EOS, WHO FROM HER STATION IN THE SKY HAD VIEWED THE SCENE BELOW, WEPT AND LAMENTED FOR HER SON. NIGHT, IN SYMPATHY WITH HER GRIEF SPREAD THE HEAVEN WITH CLOUDS AS ALL NATURE MOURNED FOR THE OFFSPRING OF THE DAWN. EOS REMAINS INCONSOLABLE FOR THE LOSS OF HER SON, AND HER TEARS CONTINUE TO FLOW. THEY CAN BE SEEN IN THE EARLY MORNING IN THE FORM OF THE DEWDROPS ON THE GRASS.
