  In Greek mythology, Geras was the god of old age. Geras was depicted as a tiny shrivelled us old man. Geras was son of Nyx and Erebus or of Nyx with no father. Geras's opposite was Hebe, the goddess of youth.   According to one version, Zeus put mortal men in trouble by sending women and Old Age to them.
