Bronze head of Hypnos, the god of sleep, 1st-2nd century AD; Possibly Roman copy of a Hellenistic original, found at Civitella d’Arno, near Perugia, Italy. “Hypnos first appears in mythology in the works of one of the earliest Greek poets, Hesiod (lived around 700 BC), where Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death) were the terrible sons of Nyx (Night). Hypnos was, however, generally viewed as benevolent to mankind. His son was Morpheus, the personification of dreams.” -The British History Museum
