Tyrrhus in ancient Italian mythology, was a chief shepherd of Latinus, king of Italy. He was the owner of a beautiful tame deer which Silvia nursed, bathed, and ornamented with flowers. The Fury Alecto, sent from Tartarus chased this deer, so that it came within reach of Ascanius, who wounded it, whereupon it fled towards home. The angry shepherd and his sons, and invisibly the Furies also, assembled the neighboring inhabitants, and this was popularly assigned as the original cause of the war which Jeneas was obliged to carry on with the Latinians in Italy.
