Ion[edit]

In Euripides Ion, Aeolus is referred to as the son of Zeus and the husband of Creusa, the daughter of Erechtheus. Just wondering how this fits in with the other interpretations of Aeolus.

Multiplying Aeolus[edit]

Differing genealogies and minor details don';t make multiple keeps of the Winds. The last two sections need joining together.--Wetman (talk) 21:11, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Mimas/Hippotes[edit]

How can the son of Hippotes be the son of Mimas? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Grushenka (talkcontribs) 12:16, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Because the Greeks did not translate myth into "biography" and collect and burn as heretical all versions save the one that was declared orthodox.--Wetman (talk) 15:28, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

IPA for classical Greek pronunciation gives [ájjolos]; it links over to "IPA for Greek", which lists two columns for each letter, rendering both the classical and modern pronunciations in IPA format. However, there is no letter which gives the consonant "j" in classical (or modern, for that matter) pronunciation. I suppose the IPA rendering in the article should be fixed, but I don't have a sufficient knowledge of classical Greek pronunciation.74.192.195.94 (talk) 11:20, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Incidentally, I understand the consonant [j], but I am questioning the validity of a double consonant for the vowel iota, and anyhow there seems to be no consonant that takes the sound [j] in Greek.74.192.195.94 (talk) 11:24, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Roman version[edit]

Is there a Roman equelevent(s) of this/these (Semi-)God(s)?, I can't find any mention.--82.134.154.25 (talk) 20:37, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
