Personification of Envy and Jealousy
Armento vase painting 375-350 BC
In Greek mythology, Phthonos // (Greek: Φθόνος, Phthónos) was the personification of jealousy and envy, most prominently in matters of romance. In Nonnus's Dionysiaca, he is by proxy the cause of Semele's death, having informed Hera of her husband's affair. He also appears in Callimachus's Hymn to Apollo, goading the god into an argument of quantity over quality.
