TYKHON (Tychon), KONISALOS (Conisalus) and ORTHANES were three, rustic fertility-spirits (daimones)--phallic deities, similar to satyrs, depicted with erect members.
CONISALUS (Konidalos), a daemon, who together with Orthanes and Tychon appeared in the train of Priapus. (Aristoph. Lys. 983; Athen. x. p. 441 Strab. xiii. p. 588; Hesych. s. v.)
TYCHON (Tuchôn). 1. A god of chance or accident. was, according to Strabo (ix. D. 408), worshipped at Athens. (Comp. Anthol. Palat. ix. 334.) 2. An obscene daemon, is mentioned as a companion of Aphrodite and Priapus, and seems to signify "the producer," or "the fructifier." (Etym. Magn. and Hesych. s. v.)
