Greek South Wind God

Also known as AEOLOS, AIOLOS

God of the South Winds

The son of POSEIDON, he stores his winds in goatskin bottles. Used with care they are beneficial but popping corks with abandon brings on tempests.

SISYPHUS claimed AEOLUS was his dad, but you know what a shifty character he was, so don’t let him cloud your judgment.
