Philotes

| |

Philotes was the personification of love and passion in Greek mythology and she was the daughter of Erebus (Darkness) and Nyx (Night).

In Hesiod’s Theogony, she stood in for both sexual and social interactions. She is claimed to have siblings like Apate (Deceit) and Nemesis (Indignation). Philotes (Feuds) and Neikea (Feuds) were identified by Empedocles as two of the forces that drove creation, with Philotes being the force of good things and Neikea being the force of evil things. He also compares her to Kypris and says that Philotes is saddened and outraged by offerings that take human life, and he calls for a ban on animal sacrifices.
