OENOTRUS

ΟΙΝΩΤΡΟΣ

The youngest son of Lycaon who emigrated with a colony from Arcadia to Italy, and called the district in which he settled, after himself, Oenotria (Paus. viii. 3. § 2; Virg. Aen. i. 532, iii. 165, vii. 85; Strab. vi. p. 253, &c.). According to Varro, he was a king of the Sabines, and not a Pelasgian, and his brother was called Italus (Serv. ad Aen. i. 536). According to Dionysius (i. 1l, &c. ii. 1), Oenotrus was accompanied by his brother Peucetius, and landed in the bay of Ausonia.
