LYCOREUS

ΛΥΚΩΡΕΥΣ

1. A surname of Apollo, perhaps in the same sense as Lyceius; but he is usually so called with reference to Lycoreia, on Mount Parnassus. (Apollon. Rhod. iv. 1490; Callim. Hymn. in Apoll. 19; Orph. Hymn. 33. 1.)

2. A son of Apollo and the nymph Corycia, from whom Lycoreia, in the neighbourhood of Delphi, was believed to have derived its name. (Paus. x. 6. § 2.)

3. There are two other mythical personages of this name. (Apollon. Rhod. ii. 51; Serv. ad Aen. ii. 761.)
