Phanes was the first ruler ever in the Greek Myths. Phanes passed it to Gaia or Nyx. One of them passed it to Uranus, then Kronos, then Zeus. Zeus then ate Phanes to absorb Phanes' cosmic power.


Phanes was usually shown with golden wings and wrapped in snake coils. Phanes was neither male nor female but hermaphroditic.


  • Phanes had cosmic powers

Phanes means "bright to light" or "make appear" from the Greek verb phanao or phaino.
