Personification of grief
|Parents||Aether and Gaia(Hyginus)|
In Greek mythology, Penthus (Πενθος)// was the personification of grief. When Zeus began passing out domains to the various gods, Penthus was not there. As such, Penthus received the one domain no one wanted: grief and sadness. It is believed that he likes to torment the same individuals; he favors those who weep for the dead.
