NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “hḗlios (ἥλιος)” Latinized as Helius (sun, east, day, sunshine). Helios was the personification of the Sun in Greek mythology. 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. The Greek “ἥλιος” is the inherited word for the Sun, cognate with the Latin “sol” and the Sanskrit “surya”. In Greek mythology, the Heliades (Greek: Ἡλιάδες, "children of the sun") were the daughters of Helios and Clymene the Oceanid.
