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.
