English: Tychon (Τυχων = "producer") is the name of two minor deities in Greek mythology. One was a daemon of fertility, especially of male fertility, associated with Phales, Priapus and his mother Aphrodite. Another Tychon, a god of chance or accident, is mentioned by the geographer Strabo, who stated that “Priapos... resembles the Attic deities Orthannes, Konisalos (Conisalus), Tykhon (Tychon), and others like them.” He was worshipped at Athens. The only known depiction of Tychon is now in Antakya Archaeology Museum, Turkey. He is shown as a boy with a semi-erect penis opposite the kakodaimon (evil spirit) and his evil eye.
