In Greek mythology, Agathodaemon or Agathos Daimon was the spirit of vineyards and fields, providing luck, health and wisdom. He was one of the daemons in the classical sense of the term, which should not be confused with the modern-day use of the word. In classical mythology, daemons were benevolent nature spirits similar to ghosts that also served as guardian spirits. Although Agathodaemon did not have any significant part in Greek mythology, he was quite popular in Greek folk religion, honouring him in feasts and symposia.
