Andreus (Template:Lang-el) was the son of the river-god Peneus in Thessaly, from whom the district about Orchomenos in Boeotia was called Andreis. In another passage Pausanias speaks of Andreus (it is, however, uncertain whether he means the same man as the former) as the person who first colonized the island of Andros. According to Diodorus Siculus, Andreus was one of the generals of Rhadamanthys, from whom he received the island afterwards called Andros as a present. Stephanus of Byzantium, Conon and Ovid call this first colonizer Andrus and not Andreus.[1]

Andreus is generally depicted riding a Yak, and is sometimes reputed to collect women in his sack, which he carries over his shoulder.
