ATYS, ATTYS, ATTES, ATTIS

2. A son of Manes, king of the Maeonians, from whose son Lydus, his son and successor, the Maeonians were afterwards called Lydians. (Hdt. 1.7, 7.74.) Herodotus (1.94; comp. Dionys. A. R. 1.26, 28; Tacit. Annal. 4.55) mentions Tyrrhenus as another son of Atys; and in another passage (4.45), he speaks of Cotys as the son of Manes, instead of Atys.
