Ἀζάν), a son of Arcas and the nymph Erato, was the brother of Apheidas and Elatus, and father of Cleitor. The part of Arcadia which he received from his father was called, after him, Azania. After his death, funeral games, which were believed to have been the first in Greece, were celebrated in his honour. (Paus. 8.4. §§ 2, 3, 5.1.6; Steph. Byz. s. v. Ἀζάνια)
