), a Titan, a son of Uranus and Ge, and married to his sister Theia, or Euryphaessa, by whom he became the father of Helios, Selene, and Eos. (Hes. Th. 134
, &c.; Apollod. 1.1.3
.) Homer uses the name in a patronymic sense applied to Helios, so that it is equivalent to Hyperionion or Hyperionides; and Homer's example is imitated also by other poets. (Hom. Od. 1.8
, Il. 8.480
; Hes. Th. 1011
; Ov. Met. 15.406
.) Apolldorus dorus (3.12.5) mentions a son of Priam of the name of Hyperion.
