Miscellanea

Elpis: In Greek mythology, Elpis was the personification and spirit of hope, perhaps a child of Nyx and mother of Pheme, the goddess of fame, renown and rumor. She was depicted as a young woman, usually carrying flowers or cornucopia in her hands. In Hesiod's Works and Days, Elpis was the last item in Pandora's box. Based on Hesiod's description, the debate is still alive to determine if Elpis was only hope, or more generally expectation.
