Apate was the daughter of Nyx in Greek mythology.[1] She was the personification of deceit, and was one of the evil spirits released from Pandora's box. Her Roman equivalent was Fraus, which is where the word 'fraud' originated. 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. Her mother, Nyx is the personification of night, and her father, Erebus, the personification of darkness.
