  2. Etymology: [L., fr. Gr. .]


  1. Plutus

    Ploutos, usually Romanized as Plutus, was the god of wealth in ancient Greek religion and myth. He was the son of Demeter and the demigod Iasion, with whom she lay in a thrice-ploughed field. In the theology of the Eleusinian Mysteries he was regarded as the Divine Child. His relation to the classical ruler of the underworld Plouton, with whom he is often conflated, is complex, as Pluto was also a god of riches.
