PHANTASOS

Greek Dream God

God of Weird Dreams

Particularly the surreal ones where you’re flying over a lake of custard and seventeen giraffes blow raspberries at you.

The brother of MORPHEUS and PHOBETOR, who are far more down-to-earth, PHANTASOS specializes in symbolic dreams of a deeply meaningful nature.

Dreams prompted by him are rich in imagery, and may yield important hints of past, present or future. But you’ll have to go elsewhere to find out what it all means because PHANTASOS isn’t telling.

But be careful reading too much into his dreams as they are notoriously tricky to interpret. Where else do you think the word ‘fantasy’ comes from?
