Karpo was one of the three original Horae, or Hours, in Greek mythology. The Horae were the goddesses of the seasons and the natural portions of time as they presided over the revolutions of the heavenly constellations by which the year was measured. Their three sisters, the Moirae, spun out the web of fate.
Ancient Greeks initially recognized only three seasons-- spring, summer, and autumn. Thus initially only three Horae represented the seasons of the year, as well as the stage of plant growth that marked off and measured each seasons. Thallo was known as the bringer of blossoms and was the goddess of spring and blooming, as well as the protector young people. Auxo, known as the protector of vegetation and plants, was the goddess of growth and fertility.
Karpo was linked to autumn, as she was known for bringing fruitful ripening and harvesting. Karpo was also the guardian of the path that led to Mount Olympus and ensured that it was veiled behind cloud cover after the gods had entered or exited through the gates.
