Ἀγήτωρ), a surname given to several gods, for instance, to Zeus at Lacedaemon (Stob. Serm. 42): the name seems to describe Zeus as the leader and ruler of men; but others think, that it is synonymous with Agamemnon [AGAMEMNON, 2]:--to Apollo (Eur. Med. 426) where however Elmsley and others prefer ἁλήτωρ :--to Hermes, who conducts the souls of men to the lower world. Under this name Hermes had a statue at Megalopolis. (Paus. 8.3]. § 4.)
