PANTHOUS

ΠΑΝΘΟΟΣ

One of the elders at Troy, was married to Phrontis, and the father of Euphorbus, Polydamas, and Hyperenor. (Hom. II. iii. 146, xiv. 450, xvii. 24, 40, 81.) Virgil (Aen. ii. 319) makes him a son of Othrys, and a priest of Apollo, a dignity to which, according to Servius on this passage, he was raised by Priam; originally he was a Delphian, and had been carried to Troy by Antenor, on account of his beauty. (Comp. Lucian. Gall. 17.)
