296px-William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) - Day (1881)

Day (Français: Jour) by William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1884). The painting represents Emera, the personification of the Day.

In Greek mythology, Hemera was the personification of day and one of the Greek primordial deities. She is the goddess of the daytime and according to the Hesiod, the daughter of Erebos and Nyx. Hemera is remarked upon in Ciero's De Natura Deorum, where it is logically determined that Hemera must be a god if Uranus is one. The poet, Bacchylides, states that Nyx and Chronos are the parents, but Hyginus in his preface to the Fabulae mentions Chaos as the mother/father and Nyx as her sister.
