Ophion the serpent is created by Eurynome, a supreme creatrix goddess dancing on the ocean’s waves. Ophion entwines and fertilizes her, and she takes the form of a dove to lay an egg on the waters. Eurynome bids Ophion coil about the egg until it hatches. Out of the egg tumbles all creation: sun, moon, planets, stars, earth, and all living creatures.
