    Phoebus was a Greek Sun god, and drove a chariot of horses that pulled the sun across the sky.Otherwise, see here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phobos_%28mythology%2...

    I see errors in answers and in spelling. Deimos and Phobos are Terror and Fear. They are sons of Ares god of war and accompany him into battles. Phoebus was a Giant whom Apollo slew. Afterward, we hear of Phoebus Apollo. (Athene slew pallas and was called Pallas Athene.) Aries is a zodiac sign, not a war god. I cannot figure how you confuse a hose with Phobos. Perhaps Pegasus the winged horse?

    No, Phobos (god of fear) was one of the two sons of Mars. Like all Hellenic gods, he is anthropomorphic (looks human) not like a horse. He should not be confused with Phoebus, one of the sun gods of Greek mythology.

    Just to ellaborate, the twins were named Phobos (fear) and Deimos (terror). They were the sons of Aries and, of all strange associations, Aphrodite. That's a mating between war (Aries) and love (Aphrodite).

    Mars and Venus are the Roman names of the twins' parents. Phobos is Greek. ;)

    Where'd you get the idea that he was a horse, just out of curiosity?

    Here are some links to Phobos and horse

    (evidently Phobos was a horse and companion to Aries): http://www.timelessmyths.com/classical/companions....

    Aries had fire breathing horses. I didn't remember that!
