    Hi Dave,
    This isn’t actually Akeso. It’s a painting called “Night” by Edward Robert Hughes. I use it when I can’t find an image of the Goddess or her attributes.

    Sorry, that’s about the best I can do. For some of these Goddesses, there is very little information that has come down to us from ancient Greece. All we can go on is what is said in the epic poems that we still have or that are referred to by other authors.
