Aether known from Greek myth and legend as one of the primordial deities. One of the old gods.
The personification of the upper sky. Aether embodies the pure upper air that the gods breathe.
Like Tartarus and Erebus, the god Aether may have had shrines in ancient Greece, but he had no temples and is unlikely to have had a cult.
The fifth Orphic hymn to Aether describes the substance as “the high-reigning, ever indestructible power of Zeus,” “the best element,” and “the life-spark of all creatures.”
