In terms of Greek mythology, the chronological order of gods would be: the primordial deities (such as Chaos and Gaia), the Titans (Cronus), and then the Olympians (Zeus).

Gaia was seen as the personification of the earth and was often associated with the sky god Uranus. Together they had twelve children who ruled the world before being overthrown by their own children, the Olympians.

Both Tiamat and Chaos were both considered primordial deities in their respective mythologies. Tiamat gave birth to the gods and monsters of Babylonian mythology, while Chaos was believed to be the source from which all other elements and beings were created in Greek mythology.

Anu and Cronus were both powerful sky gods in their respective mythologies. Anu was the father of the gods in Babylonian mythology. Cronos was the father of the Olympian gods, but he was also their greatest enemy.

Likewise, Antu was considered to be the mother of the gods in Babylonian mythology. Rhea was the mother of the Olympian gods.
