The Hesperides were the three goddesses of evening and the golden light of sunset. They were entrusted with the care of the tree of the golden apples which was presented to Hera by Gaia (Mother Earth) on her wedding day. The Hesperides were assisted in the task by the hundred-headed Drakon Ladon.
“Now Hesperos (Evening) begat a daughter named Hesperis (Evening), whom he gave in marriage to his brother [Atlas] and after whom the land was given the name Hesperitis; and Atlas begat by her seven daughters, who were named after their father Atlantides, and after their mother Hesperides.”
- Diodorus Siculus, Library of History 4.26.2
