Encyclopædia Britannica online, August 17, 2018 (Nyx, in Greek mythology, female personification of night; According to Hesiod's Theogony, she was the daughter of Chaos and the mother of numerous primordial powers, including Sleep, Death, the Fates, Nemesis, and Old Age; The Orphic Rhapsodies made her the daughter and successor of Phanes, a creator god)
The Oxford classical dictionary, 1996 (Nyx (Νύξ), personification of night. In Greek mythology she was a great cosmogonical figure, feared and respected even by Zeus. In Hesiod she is born of Chaos and mother of Aether, Hemera, and lesser powers. In the Orphic Rhapsodies she is daughter of Phanes and succeeds to his power. Nyx was primarily a mythographer's goddess, with little cult)
