In Greek mythology, Opus was a son of Zeus and Protogeneia, the daughter of Deucalion. Opus was a king of the Epeians and father of Cambyse or Protogeneia.[1]

Opus II was a son of Locrus or Zeus by Cambyse and thus a grandson of Opus the first.[2] From him, a portion of the Locri derived their name Opuntii. (see Opus, Locris)
