*More usually anglicised as ‘Eos’ from the Attic Greek, in Homeric Greek Ἠώς ‘Ios’, the goddess of dawn in Greek mythology.
‘Eos fell in love several times. According to Pseudo-Apollodorus, it was the jealous Aphrodite who cursed her to be perpetually in love and have an insatiable sexual desire because once had Eos lain with Aphrodite’s sweetheart Ares, the god of war. This caused her to abduct a number of handsome young men…’
*Another Homeric epithet for the dawn, Ἠριγένεια (Iriyenia), the early born.

nice contemporary references, Peter.
Cheers, Dean. While she may be ageless, her attendant classical references can be played with, I reasoned.
