In Greek mythology, Plouto or Pluto (Πλουτώ "Wealth") was, according to the late 8th–early 7th century BC Greek poet Hesiod, and the probably nearly as old Homeric Hymn 2 to Demeter, one of the many Oceanid daughters of Oceanus and Tethys.[1][2] Hesiod calls her "soft eyed", and the Homeric Hymn has her as one of the "deep-bosomed daughters of Oceanus" who were the playmates of Persephone when she was abducted by Hades. She may be the same with another Pluto, the mother of Tantalus.[3]
