). The daughter of Laomedon, king of Troy, and of
Leucippé. By her death she was to appease the wrath of Poseidon, who, on account of
her father's breaking his word, was devastating the land with a marine monster. Heracles
destroyed the monster and set the maiden free; but Laomedon wished to break his promise to the
hero, and to deprive him of his stipulated payment. Heracles took Troy, slew Laomedon and his
sons, and gave Hesioné to his companion Telamon, to whom she bore a son, Teucer.
