Edo'nus

Ἠδωνός), the mythical ancestor of the Edones in Thrace. (Steph. Byz. s. v. Ἠδωνιοί.) The name is therefore used also in the sense of "Thracian," and as Thrace was one of the principal seats of the worship of Dionysus, it further signifies "Dionysiac" or "Bacchantic." (Ov. Rem. Am. 593; Hor. Carm. 2.7.27.)
