). A patronymic applied to various individuals,
of whom the most important are Sisyphus, son of Aeolus; Odysseus, to whom it is given because
his mother, Anticlea, was pregnant by Aeolus when she married Laertes; and Misenus, the
follower of Aeneas, who was called so figuratively, from his skill in blowing the trumpet. The
feminine form is Aeolis.
