Μακεδών). A son of Osiris (q.v.), and worshipped by the Egyptians, who represented him as clothed in a wolf's skin. The hero who gave his name to Macedonia (q.v.) was by some regarded as identical with this Egyptian, but by some was held to be the grandson of Deucalion (q.v.). His name is also given as Macednus. See Apollod. iii.8.1.
