Γλαῦκος: Glaucus tells of his race, Z 145 ff. He was first cousin of Sarpedon and grandson of Bellerophon, descended from Sisyphus of Corinth. He is associated with Sarpedon in the battles. He has a famous meeting with Diomed, 6.119 ff. He was wounded by Teucer, 12.387 ff. The honors received by the two Lycian heroes at home, are enumerated by Sarpedon, 12.310. — The name ‘Lycia’ is given by the poet also to the district from which Pandarus (v. 827) comes, cf. 5.105.
