Greek gods & goddesses website, January 31, 2020 (Thanatos was the Greek god of nonviolent deaths. His name literally translates to "death" in Greek. In some myths, he's considered to be a personified spirit of death rather than a god. The touch of Thanatos was gentle, often compared to the touch of Hypnos, who was the god of sleep. Thanatos and Hypnos are twins; In Roman mythology, Thanatos was named Mors or Letum)
