Ἱπποκόων). The son of Oebalus of Sparta and of the nymph Batea. He drove his brothers Tyndareus and Icarins from home. Afterwards, in consequence of his slaying the young Oeonus, a kinsman of Heracles, he himself, with his twenty sons, was slain by Heracles in alliance with King Cepheus of Tegea. Tyndareus was thereby restored to the inheritance of his father's kingdom.
