euryphaessa

THEIA

[noun]

Greek mythology: Theia “goddess” or “divine” (sometimes written as Thea or Thia), also called Euryphaessa “wide-shining,” was a Titan. The name Theia alone means simply, “goddess”; Theia Euryphaessa (Θεία Εὐρυφάεσσα) combines the concepts of width (εὐρύς, eurys, “wide”, root: εὐρυ-/εὐρε-) and brightness (φάος, phaos, “light”, root: φαεσ-).
