The Protogenoi (Πρωτογενοι)

By Elani Temperance

The Protogenoi (Πρωτογενοι) are the First Born Deities of the Greek Kosmos. They are the building blocks of the universe, primordial Deities. I have written before about Them, in a post about genealogy of the Gods.

The Protogenoi we know of are: Aether (Αἰθήρ, ‘Light’), Ananke (Ἀνάγκη, ‘Fate’ or ‘Compulsion’), Khronos (Χρόνος, ‘Time’), Erebos (Ἔρεβος, ‘Darkness’), Eros (Ἔρως, ‘Desire’ or ‘Love’), Gaea (Γαῖα, ‘Earth’), Hemera (Ἡμέρα, ‘Day’), Hydros (Ὑδρος, ‘Primordial Waters’), Khaos (χάος, ‘Chaos’ or ‘Air’), Nêsoi (Νησοι, ‘Islands’), Nyx (Νύξ, ‘Night’), Ôkeanos (Ωκεανος, ‘Water’), Ourea (Oὔρεα, ‘Mountains’), Phanes (Φάνης ‘Procreation’), Pontos (Πόντος, ‘Sea’), Phusis (φύσις, ‘Nature’), Tartaros (Τάρταρος), Thalassa (Θάλασσα, ‘Sea’), Thesis (Θεσις, ‘Creation’), Uranos (Οὐρανός, ‘Sky’).
