ANTHEUS

ΑΝΘΕΥΣ

The blooming.

1. A surname of Dionysus. (Paus. vii. 21. § 2.) Anthius, a surname which Dionysus bore at Athens, is probably only a different form for Antheus. (Paus. i. 31. § 2.)

2. There are also two fabulous personages of this name. (Hygin. Fab. 157; Virg. Aen. i. 181, 510, xii. 443.)
