Hesperos
In Greek mythology, Hesperus /ˈhɛspərʊs/ (Ancient Greek: Ἓσπερος Hesperos) is the Evening Star, the planet Venus in the evening. He is the son of the dawn goddess Eos (Roman Aurora) and is the half-brother of her other son, Phosphorus (also called Eosphorus; the "Morning Star"). Hesperus' Roman equivalent is Vesper (cf. "evening", "supper", "evening star", "west"[1]). By one account Hesperus' father was Cephalus, a mortal, while Phosphorus' was the star god Astraios. Other sources, however, state that Hesperus was the brother of Atlas, and thus the son of Iapetus[2]Contents1 Variant names 2 "Hesperus is Phosphorus" 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksVariant names[edit] Hesperus is the personification of the "evening star", the planet Venus in the evening
