Dryas

*Dru/as), a son of Ares, and brother of Tereus, was one of the Calydonian hunters. He was murdered by his own brother, who had received an oracle, that his son Itys should fall by the hand of a relative. (Apollod. 1.8.2; Hygin. Fab. 45.) There are five other mythical personages of this name. (Apollod. 2.1.5; Horn. Il. 6.130; Apollod. 3.5.1; Hom. Il. 1.263; Hesiod. Scut. Herc. 179.)
