Apate (deity)

In the religion of Ancient Greece, Apate was the personification of deceit. Her mother was Nyx, the personification of night.[1][2] Her Roman equivalent was Fraus (i.e. "fraud").

Her siblings were Geras, the personification of old age; Oizys, the personification of suffering; Moros, the personification of doom; Momos, the personification of blame; Eris, the personification of strife; Nemesis, the personification of retribution; and Keres, the personification of carnage and violent death.
