sorry, a bit tired, take me time to figure out things
chronos is NOT cronus - cronus is a titan - chronos is the first god in existance - portrayed as a man with a really long beard - or father time.
alternatively spelled Khronos (transliteration of the Greek) or Chronus (Latin version) - he is the personification of time.
Chronos was imagined as an incorporeal god, serpentine in form, with three heads-that of a man, a bull, and a lion. He and his consort, serpentine Ananke (Inevitability), circled the primal world-egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky.
He was depicted in Greco-Roman mosaics as a man turning the Zodiac Wheel. Often the figure is named Aeon (Eternal Time), a common alternate name for the god.
