*Eu)/nhos or Εὔνευς), a son of Jason by Hypsipyle, in the island of Lemnos, from whence he supplied the Greeks during their war against Troy with wine. He purchased Lycaon, a Trojan prisoner, of Patroclus for a silver urn. (Hom. Il. 7.468, 23.741, &c.; Strab. i. p.41.) The Euneidae, a famous family of cithara-players in Lemnos, traced their origin to Euneus. (Eustath. ad Hom. p. 1327; Hesych. s. v. Εὐνεῖδαι.)
