Amphi'anax

Ἀμφιάναξ), a king of Lycia. When Proetus was expelled from Argos by his twin-brother Acrisius, Amphianax received him at his court, gave him his daughter Anteia (some call her Stheneboea) in marriage, and afterwards led him back to Argolis, where his share in the government and Tiryns were restored to him. Some traditions called this Lycian king lobates. (Apollod. 2.2.1; Hom. Il. 6.157, &c.)
