Chronos ("CHRONOS" in Latin, Khronos in Greek, and Chronus in English) was the Greek Primordial God of Time. He was often confused with Cronus, the Titan God of Agriculture and Destructive Forces of Time. His consort was Anance and he is often portrayed as "Father Time". He is numbered among the Protogenoi, who emerged at the time of creation.
