PLUTUS
Also known as PLOUTOS

God of Riches and Wealth.

The son of DEMETER, he made the Horn of Plenty from one of ACHELOUS's horns and filled it to the brim with goodies.

To avoid favoritism when it came to doling out the cornucopias, ZEUS blinded him. So now he can't see a thing and wealth is dispensed to good and bad alike. But you could try writing him a begging letter in Braille.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Plutus graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Plutus movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Plutus statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Plutus. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
