Deity a Day: Day 1



Phanes
(Greek)

"Light"; sometimes called Eros (not to be confused with the god of love).

First of all the recognizable gods, forefather of Zeus.  Born a vast egg formed by Nux ("night") and Ether ("air"), Phanes joined with Nux to create Uranus ("Heaven") and Gaia ("Earth").
