2. A son of Hippolochus, and grandson of Bellerophontes. He was a Lycian prince, and led his hosts from Xanthus to the assistance of Priam in the war with the Greeks. (Hom. 2.2.875, 6.206; Hdt. 1.147.) He was one of the most eminent heroes on the side of the Trojans, and connected with Diomedes by ties of hospitality, which shows a very early intercourse between the Greeks and Lycians. (Hom. Il. 7.13, 12.387, 14.426, 16.492, &c., 17.140, &c.) He was slain by Ajax, but his body was carried back to Lycia. (Quint. Smyrn. Paralip. 3.236, 4.1, &c.)
