Carnus was a demigod and a son of Zeus and Europa.


Carnus was the son of Zeus and the mortal woman Europa. He was reared by Leto and Apollo. He became a seer in Acarnania. He was also known to have been a lover of Apollo.

Carnus accompanied the Heracleidae, and was killed by Hippotes with a spear for giving obscure prophecies. Apollo then struck the Dorians with plague; having consulted an oracle, they banished Hippotes from their camp and established a cult of Apollo Carneius to propitiate the god.
