Usous in Phoenician mythology, was, according to tradition, handed down by Sanchoniathon as a brother of Hypsuranius, who at first protected his body with hides of animals which: he had killed; and when rains and winds came, and fire broke out through friction of the trees one with another, he risked himself upon a tree, whose branches he had cut off, out upon the treacherous sea. He dedicated two pillars to fire and wind, and sacrificed the blood of the animals he had slain.
