Greek Wealth God

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.
