Hyperʹion

.

Properly, the father of the Sun and Moon, but by poets made a surname of the Sun. Shakespeare makes it a synonym of Apollo. The proper pronunciation is Hyperiʹon. Thus Ovid

“Placat equo Persis radiis Hyperiŏne cinctum.”


Fasti, i. 385.


“So excellent a king, that was to this

Hyperʹion to a satyr.”
