In Greek mythology, Orphne /ˈɔːrfn/ (Ancient Greek: Ὀρφνή, from ὄρφνη, “darkness”), also known as Styx /ˈstɪks/ (Στύξ) or Gorgyra /ˈɡɔːrərə/ (Γόργυρα, fromγοργύρα, “underground drain”),[1] was a nymph that lived in Hades. With Acheron, she mothered Ascalaphus.[1]

Orphne also seems to be one translation of the name of the Roman goddess Caligo (Darkness).[1]
