*)/Asbolos), a centaur, whom Hesiod (Scut. Here. 185) calls οἰωνιστής, probably from his skill in observing or prophesying from the flight of birds. He fought against the Lapithae at the nuptials of Peirithous, and was subsequently nailed to a cross by Heracles, who is said to have made an epigram upon him, which is preserved in Philostratus. (Her. 19.17; comp. Tzetz. Chil. 5.22.)
