(Redirected from Erebus)

Erebus is the god of darkness in Greek mythology. He came out of Chaos. He was also known to be the god fire; and he was that until Hephaestus took his place along with the ability of metal works. He is the twin of Nyx, the Goddess of Night.

Mount Erebus and a small crater on Mars are named after the Greek God.
