Further Info

LELANTOS was the younger Titan god of air and the hunter’s skill of stalking prey. His name was derived from the Greek words lêthô, lanthanô, and lelathon, meaning “to escape notice,” “move unseen” or “go unobserved.” On a geographical level, Lelantos was probably associated with the Lelantian plain of Euboia. However Nonnus transfers the myth to Phrygia.

Lelantos is apparently the male counterpart of Leto, just as his daughter, the virgin huntress Aura (“Breeze”), is the counterpart of Leto’s Artemis.


Wiki Info

Lelantos, or Lelantus, was the Titan father of Aura by Periboa. He was the son of Coeus and Phoebe and brother to Leto and Asteria.
