The ancient Greek Gods and Goddess contain a wealth of stories and legends, wrapped in Myths which typically provide a story with a morale code designed to influence the reader into behaviour as fitting Greek culture of the era.
In this article, we look at Hyrmine and the myths and legends surrounding Hyrmine, Hyrmine relationship to and with other Greek Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
Was the daughter of Epeius and Anaxiroe (or Neleus, or Nycteus), (she may have had a sister or brother called Alector? See under Phorbas.) She married Phorbas, and their children were the Argonauts, Actor, Tiphys, and Augeas (although Helios was also mentioned as a natural father of Augeas?) I find no evidence to link Nycteus to Hyrmine? Nor Neleus, which is just another name given to the River god of the Nile, Nilius. As for Helios (which is just another name of the Sun) being the father of Augeas I find it equally unsubstantiated. However, you could argue, that the Sun, the Earth and the Ocean are the maternal parents of all living things.
