Headword: *tritopa/tores
Adler number: tau,1023
Translated headword: Tritopatores, Tritopatreis
Vetting Status: high
Demon in the Atthis says that the Tritopatores are winds,[1] Philochorus that the Tritopatores were born first of all. For the men of that time, he says, understood as their parents the earth and the sun, whom then they called Apollo.[2] Phanodemus in [book] 6 maintains that only [the] Athenians both sacrifice to them and pray to them, when they are about to marry, for the conception of children.[3] In the Physikos of Orpheus the Tritopatores are named Amalkeides and Protokles and Protokleon, being doorkeepers and guardians of the winds.[4] But the author of Explanation claims that they are [the offspring] of Heaven and Earth, and that their names are Kottos, Briareon and Gyges.
