Hesiod's Theogony

• Arrows indicate descent.
• Siblings are in front of a grey polygon, or inside one.
• Pink lines link mates when no offspring is indicated.
• Read from Chaos (upper left),
"the first that came to be."

• The MOERAE appear twice in the chart. The Theogony describes them first (218) as daughters of Nyx, and later (903) as daughters of Zeus.
• Having swallowed Metis 1 while she was pregnant, Zeus produced Athena from his own head.
• Only those NEREIDS and OCEANIDS whose offspring is mentioned by Hesiod are included in the table.
Hephaestus fashioned Pandora 1. Hesiod does not mention her by name in the Theogony.
• When reading Hesiod's Theogony, some have understood that Gaia "came after Chaos" in the sense that Gaia is the offspring of Chaos, whereas others think she just appeared after Chaos. The same applies to Eros and Tartarus. Nyx and Erebus remain the undisputed offspring of Chaos. Similarly, some regard Nereus as the son of Pontus by himself, whereas others regard him as the son of Pontus and Gaia.
