Helios in Wikipedia
In Greek mythology, the sun was personified as Helios
(pronounced /ˈhiːli.ɒs/, Greek: Ἥλιος "sun", Latinized as
Helius). Homer often calls him simply Titan or Hyperion, while
Hesiod (Theogony 371) and the Homeric Hymn separate him as a
son of the Titans Hyperion and Theia (Hesiod) or Euryphaessa
(Homeric Hymn) and brother of the goddesses Selene, the moon,
and Eos, the dawn. The names of these three were also the
common Greek words for sun, moon and dawn.
Helios was imagined as a handsome god crowned with the shining
aureole of the sun, who drove the chariot of the sun across
the sky each day to earth-circling Oceanus and through the
world-ocean returned to the East at night. Homer described
Helios's chariot as drawn by solar steeds (Iliad xvi.779);
later Pindar described it as drawn by "fire-darting steeds"
(Olympian Ode 7.71). Still later, the horses were given fiery
names: Pyrois, Aeos, Aethon, and Phlegon...
