Eurynome

The early Titan queen

Eurynome was an early Titan queen who ruled Olympos beside her husband Ophion. The pair were wrestled for their thrones by Kronos and Rhea who cast them down into the earth-encircling River Okeanos.

Eurynome's name was derived from the Greek words eurys "wide," "broad," and nomos "ruling" or nomia "pasturelands."

She was closely identified with the other Eurynome, mother of the three Graces by Zeus.
