2: Zeus did grant this wish, however, Eos did not chose her words carefully. While Tithonus did have eternal life he did not have youth. Eos had forgotten to ask for this, so he grew older and older. Eos could no longer stand to look at him, so she locked him up in her palace. He stayed there and shrank until he became a grass hopper. | Eos was the daughter of Hyperion and Theia. She was the sister of the Sun(Helios) and the Moon(Selene). At one point she had an affair with Ares. This angered Aphrodite, who was his original lover. Aphrodite became so jealous that she punished Eos to be eternally in love. When she fell in love with a guy she would kidnap him. She fell in love with a Trojan. His name was Tithonus. She then kidnapped him and took him to Ethiopia. They had two sons, Memnon and Emathion. Eos and Tithonus loved each other so much Eos decided to go to Zeus and ask for Tithonus to have eternal life.

4: Eos’ son Memnon fought in the Trojan War against Achilles. Their mothers went to Zeus , each asking mercy for her son. Zeus using a scale, measured their “fates”. Memnon’s “fate” was heavier, therefore, he had to die. Eos begged Zeus to give her son immortality. When he denied that wish she took Memnon, and fled to Ethiopia where he became king. When he died, the tears she cried for him are said to be the dew we see on the fields in the morning.

5: Eos' sister Selene is also inspired by love. | Tithonus was the king of Ethiopia

6: While Eos was married to Tithonus, she fell in love with Cephalus, who was married to Procris. Eos tried to persuade Cephalus to flee with her, but he declined because he was in love with Procris. Eos told him there was no shame in cheating on his wife because she cheats on him. Cephalus, however, did not believe this. To prove it to him Eos gave him a disguise and sent him to Procris. With the disguise she did not recognize him, and so he managed to seduce her. Ashamed of herself Procris ran away. Eos then proceeded to kidnap Cephalus and take him to Syria. They had a son, Phaeton. Soon after Cephalus left her and returned to his wife.
