Also known as ZEPHYROS, ZEPHYRS

A picture showing the legend of ZEPHYRUS taken from our Greek mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Greek Gods, Greek Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

God of the West Wind.

One of the fours sons of EOS and ASTRAEUS, he's gentle and breezy and loves rustling the leaves of flowers. Such a softie.

ZEPHYRUS sired lots of cherubic windlets, including several of the AURAI, and also the light breezes known as Zephyrs. He also fathered ACHILLES's supernatural horses BALIUS and XANTHUS with either AELLO or CELAENO.
