Angelos is a minor goddess from the Greek mythological pantheon.

Description

Whilst information on Angelos in the modern era is scarce and largely stems from a single source, it is known that she was the daughter of Zeus and Hera, and a member of the divine Greek pantheon. She was raised by nymphs whom Zeus had entrusted with her care, but one day she stole her mothers’ anointments and gave them to a mortal woman. Forced to flee Hera’s wrath, Zeus eventually ordered her cleansed of her wrongdoings by an obscure cult of the Underworld. Thereafter she was gifted the Underworld as her purview, and given the title of katachthonia, which means literally “she of the Underworld.”
