). Son of Apollo by Rhoeo or Creüsa, whose
father, Staphylus of Naxos, a son of Dionysus and Ariadné, committed her to the sea
in a box. She was carried to Delos, and there gave birth to her son Anius. Apollo taught him
divination, and made him his priest and king of Delos. His son Thasus, like Linus and Actaeon,
was torn to pieces by dogs, after which no dogs were allowed in the island. His daughters by
the nymph Dorippé, being descendants of Dionysus, had the gift of turning anything
they pleased into wine, corn, or oil; but when Agamemnon, on his way to Troy, wished to take
them from their father by force, Dionysus changed them into doves.
