1. A son of Poseidon and Alcyone, and king of Troezene, from whom the town of Hypereia derived its name. (Paus. 2.30. 7
The island of Calauria, off the coast of Troezene, was likewise believed to have received from him the name of Hypereia (Plut. Quaest. Gr.
19). Stephanus Byzantinus (s.v. Ὑπερησία
) and Eustathius (ad Horn.
pp. 291, 332) call him a son of Lycaon.
