In Greek myth, Bronte and Sterope are two of the horses of Helios, the Sun God. It was his job to drive the sun from east to west across the arc of heaven, drawn by his chariot and a team of four divine horses. Bronte and Sterope were two of the chariot team, females who were sometimes known as Thunder and Lightning.
