In Greek mythology, Orphne (; Ancient Greek: , from , "darkness"), also known as Styx (; ?) or Gorgyra (; ?, from ?, "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).[2]
