Also Agathos Deos (Ἀγαθὸς Δεὸς), the "Good God," a divinity in honor of whom the Greeks drank a cup of unmixed wine at the end of every repast. A temple dedicated to him was situated on the road from Megalopolis to Maenalus in Arcadia. Pausanias1 conjectures that the name is a mere epithet of Zeus.
