Pluto of Romans the Greek Plouto of Flow Rain as Oceanid Later Molten Igneous Material for Mineral Wealth of Tmolus


Hesiod circa 700 b. c. provided the first record of the Oceanids such as Plouto, a goddess of rainfall and good crops whose etymology is that of pluvial and flow, so Plouto the mother of Tantalus (Atys) about 700 years before Hesiod’s day according to the ancient myth may be been named for that Oceanid, yet that daughter of Tantalus from a mineral rich area blessed by veins of ore, having been molten, flows, thus Pluto became a god of the Greeks and then of the Romans of mineral wealth and the underworld.
