*Eu)ru/nomos), a daemon of the lower world, concerning whom there was a tradition at Delphi, according to which, he devoured the flesh of dead human bodies, and left nothing but the bones. Polygnotus represented him in the Lesche at Delphi, of a dark-blue complexion, shewing his teeth, and sitting on the skin of a vulture. (Paus. 10.28.4.) There are two other mythical personages of this name, one mentioned by Ovid (Ov. Met. 12.311) and the other in the Odyssey (2.22)).
