AKTE (pronounced ack-TAY) is one of the Greek Horai, Goddesses of the hours of daylight. Not to be confused with the Horai of the seasons, these twelve Horai were the daughters of Helios, God of the sun, and each one was responsible for one-twelfth of the length of daylight time (not necessarily one hour as we understand it). Akte's time was in the afternoon, and was known as the second of the work-hours. It was also associated with an afternoon meal. Akte's name, which may mean "corn," is also seen as ACTE.
