Chapter 121, Nikta (Night) Summary and Analysis

Nikta's powers are greater than those of all other deities—she is Night. She gave birth to day and all airy space. She produced the Sister Gorgons: Sthenno, Eurydale, and Medusa. She brought forth those who guard the golden apple tree, the Sister Hesperides: Aigle, Erytheia, and Arethusa. She also gave birth to the Sister Fates: Klotho, Lachesis, and Atropos.

In her nest, protected from the wind by her black wings, she brings forth the Egg from which Eros, Erotic love, hatches so that the race of mortals might begin.
