a Titan, a son of Uranus and Ge, and
married to his sister Theia, or Euryphaessa, by whom he became
the father of Helios, Selene, and Eos. (Theogony of Hesiod 134, 371) Homer uses the name in a
patronymic sense applied to Helios, so that it is equivalent to
Hyperionion or Hyperionides and Homer's example is imitated also
by other poets. ( Theogony of Hesiod - 1011,
Metamorphoses xv.) Apollodorus mentions a son of Priam of the
name of Hyperion.
