Meaning of the baby name AMYNUS.

  

AMYNUS.  In Phoenician mythology a son of the deity Agrotus.  He is said to have taught men to construct villages and to rear cattle. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

... The first extended western sovereignty was commenced by Hephistus, known as Vulcan to the Greeks and as Diamichus, or Amynus, to the Phoenicians and Egyptians.  He lived about 3100 years B.C., or 36,000 lunations from the age of Herodotus....
... since Amynus, who first taught men to build villages, and tend flocks, was the father of Misor or Misraim, we find in him the great Ammon, progenitor of the Pharoahs, and the Ammon Ra of all the inscriptions...
... There was no Jupiter-Ammon.  They were two distinct persons, Ammon and Jupiter living at an interval of three generations.  The father of Taautus or Athothes was Minor, Menes, or Misraim; and the father of Misor was Amynus, who is believed to be Ammon.  Then Jupiter was the youngest son of Ilus, son of Epigeus, son of Elioun.  But Ammon, whether Vulcan, (Diamichius) or Amynus, was the chief God of the Egyptians, and Jupiter, or Jevant, (the young prince) was of Crete, the chief God of the Greeks... (
A Million of Facts, Phillips, 1835).
