Erythrus

2. A son of Rhadamanthus, who led the Erythraeans from Crete to the Ionian Erythrae. (Paus. 7.3.4.) There are two other mythical personages of the name of Erythrus, or Erythrius, from whom the Boeotian Erythrae, and the Erythraean Sea, are said to have received their names respectively. (Eustath. ad Hom. p. 267; Steph. Byz. s. v. Ἐρυθρά; Curtius, 8.9.)
