A promontory of Cyprus, northwest of Paphos. It is surmounted by two sugar-loaf summits,
and the remarkable appearance which it thus presents to navigators as they approach the
island on this side, caused them to give the name of Acamantis to the whole island.
A son of Theseus and Phaedra. He was deputed to accompany Diomedé, when the
latter was sent to Troy to demand Helen. During his stay at Troy he became the father of
Munitus by Laodicea, one of the daughters of Priam. He went to the Trojan War, and was one of
the warriors enclosed in the wooden horse. He afterwards led a colony from Athens to Cyprus,
where he died.
