Headword: *(/hlios
Adler number: eta,235
Translated headword: Helios
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
After the death of Hephaistos, the king of Egypt,[1] Helios his son took the rule, living 4477 days, which was 12 years, 3 months, 5 days. For some reckon the days as years, others the cycles of the moon, and others still the 4 seasons. Those who came to power afterwards and brought the country under their control reckoned time by the growth of the crops and called these properly "years". Helios, then, maintained the laws of his father, and denounced his wife when he discovered she had been debauched. Homer changed this to make it poetic, saying that the sun [helios] exposed the fact that Aphrodite had lain with Ares, calling her desire "Aphrodite" and the soldier who was caught with her "Ares".[2]
