A great black bird that is the Greek goddess of the night. A wind blew against her that impregnated her and thus from this she lay a silver egg. From this egg hatched Protogonos the ‘first born god’. Protogonos brought light to the world and made the Earth and the heavens join together to give rise to the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. Some say that from the egg was born the god Eros, the god of love who was irresistible to all.
