god of the hekateris, the rustic dance of quickly moving hands. He fathered five Dactyls and five Hekaterides
HEKATEROS (or Hecaterus) was the daimon (spirit) of the hekateris-a rustic dance of quickly moving hands--and perhaps of the skill of hands in general.
He married a daughter of Phoroneus, the very first man, and sired ten children-five Daktyloi (Dactys) or "Fingers" and five Hekaterides or "Moving Hands."
His grandchildren included the Kouretes (Curetes), Satyroi (Satyrs) and Oreiades (Oread Nymphs).
