Androgyne is ultimately derived from Ancient Greek: woman. Androgyny among humans – physical, psychological, and cultural – is attested to from earliest history and across world cultures. The ancient Greek myth of Hermaphroditus and Salmacis, two divinities who fused into a single immortal. Philosophers such as Philo of Alexandria, and early Christian leaders such as Origen and Gregory of Nyssa, continued to promote the idea of androgyny as humans’ original and perfect state during late antiquity.”
