These were Ghosts of ancient Greece that possessed the living. There is a story about a woman from India whose sixteen year old boy had been possessed by the Eidolones for two years. He refused to go to school, learn archery or even stay at home. He would wander out mocking people and lying. He spoke in a deep voice like and adult and had sinister eyes. She met an Indian sage who heard the woman’s story and gave the boy a letter addressed to the Eidolones Phantom that contained alarming threats. There is a story of another boy who was possessed by the Eidolones Phantom who would laugh and cry for no reason and scream out in pain. This creature was later exorcised and left the boy alone.
