Homer in the Iliad1 says that this Caletor, as he was putting the fire under the ship of Protesilaus, was killed by Ajax. Procleia died before Cycnus, and his second wife, Philonome, daughter of Cragasus, fell in love with Tennes.

Cycnus was deceived by the trick, placed Tennes with his sister in a chest and launched it out to sea.
