In Greek mythology, Penthus[pronunciation?] was the personification of grief. When Zeus began passing out domains to the various gods, Penthus was not there. As such, Penthus received the one domain no one wanted: grief and sadness. It is believed that he likes to torment the same individuals; he favors those who weep for the dead.
