In Roman mythology, Somnus is the personification of sleep, who resided in the underworld. According to Virgil, Somnus was the brother of Death. According to Ovid, Somnus had a 'thousand' sons called the Somnia ('dream shapes'), who appear in dreams 'mimicking many forms'. Ovid named three of the sons of Somnus: Morpheus, who appears in human guise, Icelos / Phobetor, who appears as beasts, and Phantasos, who appears as inanimate objects.
