Hesiod describes the Five Ages in his poem Works and Days (lines 109 - 201) 1. Their order is:
Hesiod does not mention a future age past his own, which would be a better fit for our own time. Therefore, we could either say that we live in the same age as Hesiod, the Iron one, or that we live in an age past the five Hesiodic ones.
