Not to be mistaken with the game company Ponos. Ponos (Ancient Greek: Πόνος) is the god of hard labour and toil (extreme physical work not just petty housework). He is the son of Nyx, the goddess of discord, and Erebos. His siblings were Horcus, Limos, Algea, the Hysminai, the Makhai, the Phonoi, the Androktasiai, the Neikea, the Pseudologoi, the Amphilogiai, Dysnomia, Ate, and Lethe. They were all personifications of wrong doings or negative situations, such as pain, fights, murder, lies and forgetfulness.
