In Homer’s Odyssey Lampetia tells Hyperion, the sun-god that Odysseus’ men killed his cattle. Lampetia whose name means shining was the daughter of Helios and Neaera. She is the personification of light and has been tasked along with her sister by their mother to guard the sheep and cattle of Thrinacia.

She looks after about 700 animals in total. When Odysseus men slaughter some of her father’s ageless and deathless cattle she runs straight to her father to tell him. Helios is enraged and demands that Odysseus men be punished or he will bring light to the underworld. This spurns Zeus to send down a lightening bolt during a storm that kills of of Odysseus men.
