Family of Coeus

Coeus, the Greek Titan of intelligence and keeper of wisdom, married Phoebe, the Titaness of the Moon and the couple was blessed with two daughters, Asteria and Leto.

The Famous Daughters of Coeus

Asteria was a goddess of fire, desired by Zeus, the King of the Greek gods. In order to escape his embraces, she took the form of a quail and threw herself into the sea. Her sister Leto, on the other hand, accepted the embrace of Zeus and gave birth to the Olympian twins Apollo, the Greek god of Music and Artemis, the Greek goddess of the Hunt on a Greek island named after her sister Asteria. Upon Leto's arrival, the island's name was changed into "Delos" ("the unconcealed one").

As with the other Titans, Coeus was finally overthrown by Zeus and other Olympian Gods and was sent to Tartaros, in the depths of the Underworld.
