Background of Crotus

  • Crotus was the son of Pan and Eupheme. Crotus refers to the myth of the Sagittarius. Crotus was a satyr that lived on Mount Helicon with the Muses. He was a skilled musician and hunter and according to Greek mythology, invented the bow. Usually, satyrs are known to be lustful, wild, rowdy creatures that have very little respect for authority and proper manners. Crotus was an exception to this because he was gifted in the arts and sciences and were polite to humans.
