A Titan and son of Crius and Eurybia. By Eos he became the father of the winds — Zephyrus, Boreas, and Notus —, Eosphorus (the morning star), and all the stars of heaven.1
Ovid2 calls the winds fratres Astraei, which does not mean that they were brothers of Astraeus, but brothers through Astraeus, their common father.
