In Greek mythology, Notus (Notos) was the south wind, brother of Eurus, Boreas and Zephyrus (together, the brothers are the Anemoi, the Winds). Generally personified as the desiccating hot wind associated with the rising of Sirius after midsummer; he brought storms in autumn and was feared as a destroyer of crops. His Roman mythological equivalent was Auster, who was the sirocco wind, bringing heavy cloud cover and fog or humid head.
