In Roman mythology, the Aeneads (Αἰνειάδαι in Greek) were the friends, family and companions of Aeneas, with whom they fled from Troy after the Trojan War. Virgil also used the word as a synonym of "Trojan", a person from Troy.
The Aeneads included:
- Acmon, son of Clytius (son of Aeolus),
- the Lares
- the Penates
Similarly, Aeneades (Ancient Greek: Αἰνειάδης) was a patronymic from Aeneas, and applied as a surname to those who were believed to have been descended from him, such as Ascanius, Augustus, and the Romans in general.
Aenides was another patronymic from Aeneas, which is applied by Gaius Valerius Flaccus to the inhabitants of Cyzicus, whose town was believed to have been founded by Cyzicus, the son of Aeneas and Aenete.
- Acmon's only appearance is in Virgil's Aeneid. Others with that name are listed at Acmon (disambiguation).
