A spirit associated with Aphrodite,[1] responsible for procreation, taking its name from the procreation [genesis] of children.[2] The name is created from genesis. But others say that [they are] associated with Artemis as guardians of childbirth, and again [this is connected] with genesis. Aristophanes [writes]: "sweet [is] the song, o lady Genetyllides, and female and tongued and tongue-kissed."[3]
