Deimos was one of the sons of Ares and Aphrodite in Greek mythology.

Deimos (Δεῖμος – "dread") was the personification of angst.

He was the son of Ares and Aphrodite. He, his twin brother Phobos and the goddess Enyo accompanied Ares into battle, as well as his father's attendants, Trembling, Fear, Dread, and Panic. His Roman equivalent was Formido or Metus.

On the modern monument to the battle of Thermopylae, Leonidas's shield has a representation of Deimos.
