In Greek mythology, Antinous, son of Eupeithes, was one of the suitors of Penelope during the absence of her husband, Odysseus, at the Trojan war. The story is told in Homer's Odyssey. Antinous was one of the meanest suitors, one of the most disliked, and the one that was blamed for the suitors having resided at the home of Odysseus. Antinous is the first of the suitors to be killed, being slain by an arrow to the throat by Odysseus, Telemachus and Eumaeus in the Great Hall.
