Helius in his chariot, early 4th c. BC, Athena’s temple, Ilion.

He dwelt in a golden palace in the river Oceanus at the far ends of the earth from which he emerged each dawn, crowned with the aureole of the sun, driving a chariot drawn by four winged steeds. When he reached the the land of the Hesperides in the far West he descended into a golden cup which bore him through the northern streams of Oceanus back to his rising place in the East.
