Wikipedia, August 18, 2014: Aion (deity) (Aion (Greek: Αἰών = Aiōn) is a Hellenistic deity associated with time, the orb or circle encompassing the universe, and the zodiac. The "time" represented by Aion is unbounded, in contrast to Chronos as empirical time divided into past, present, and future. He is thus a god of eternity, associated with mystery religions concerned with the afterlife, such as the mysteries of Cybele, Dionysus, Orpheus, and Mithras; also called Aeon) Estonian page (Aioon) Spanish page (Eón) French page (Éon) Russian page (Эон = Ėon) Finnish page (Aioni) Ukrainian page (Еон = Eon)
