More Myths
Another common myth is that the goddess Juna (goddess of the moon) had a strong grudge against the Trojan fleet. She offered Aeolus a wife named Deipea if he released his storm winds and sank all of Aeaneas's ships. Aeolus agreed and sank the ships.
After they opened the bag, all the winds came out at once and they could not get home because of a storm. Aeolus scolded him and refused to ever help him or his men again.
Myths about Aeolus
A common myth that Aeolus is a main character of is that Odysseus accidently got stranded at the island of Aeolia on a trip and Aeolus showed good hospitality to him for a month. Then he gave him a bag of four winds to help him get home and told him not to open the bag all the way. Unfortunately, while he was asleep, his men that he was traveling with thought that he was hiding treasure in the bag and they opened the bag.
Aeolus was the God of the wind who lived on the island of Aeolia where he kept all the storm winds contained in a cave, and he only left when he and the other gods deemed it necessary. He was also called Hippotades, meaning "reiner of horses". The parent of Aeolus according to myth is Hippotes.

The jar was used to keep all the winds that he was given control of.

The open bag is what he gave to Odysseus when he need a trip home and Aeolus often gave a bag a all four winds as a gift.
