Anemoi were the gods of the four directional winds. In Greek mythology, Anemoi were described as the sons of Astraeus (god of stars and planets) and Eos (goddess of dawn). Anemoi were closely connected with the season.
Boreas was the north wind and bring on cold and winter air. Notus was the south wind and bring on storms of late summer. Zephyrus was the west wind and bring on light spring and early summer breezes. Eurus the east wind, was not associated with any of the three Greek seasons. The wind gods (Anemoi) were represented as either winged man-shaped gods or horse like divine.
what about the other four winds? The total is 8 winds.ReplyDelete
