The Keres (singular: Ker) are horrible, black winged,
female spirits of death and doom who also act as avenging
spirits. They are the daughters of Nyx and Erebus.
In the festival of the Anthesteria, the Keres were
ritually driven from the house. In later times they
were regarded as the vengeful spirits of the dead.
Kora is a Greek goddess. Her name means "the maiden"
or "the daughter" and it is a frequent epithet of
Persephone. She is the daughter of Demeter and she
is the wife of Hades.
Kypris was a Greek Goddess and an epithet of Aphrodite,
who was said to have risen from the sea from the island
of Cyprus. Aphrodite¹s cult came to Greece from Cyprus,
where she was known as Kypris (Lady of Cyprus.) Aphrodite
was probably the Cypriot version of the great mother
goddess, who was worshiped under various names almost
universally around the Near and Middle East. Many
primitive idols of the mother goddess (Kypris, or
Aphrodite) were found in Cyprus. The Cyprian city
of Paphos was the site of one of the oldest centers
of her worship.
