In Greek mythology, Morpheus is the god of dreams. He lives in a dim lit cave in an ebony bed surrounded by poppy. He is responsible for weaving dreams. He plays no real part in Greek mythology, only in "The Adventures of Ulysses", the Romans version of Homers poem, the Odyssey. In "The Adventures of Ulysses", he made the Lotus with his aunt, Persephone, and lived in lotusland. He is known as the son of Hypnos, god of sleep. The word Morphine is derived from his name.
