Mile'tus

*Mi/lhtos), a son of Apollo and Areia of Crete. Being beloved by Minos and Sarpedon, he attached himself to the latter, and fled from Minos to Caria, where he built a town, which he called after his own name (Apollod. 3.1.2 ; Paus. 7.2.3; Schol. ad Apolon. Rhod. 1.186). Ovid (Ov. Met. 9.442) calls him a son of Apollo and Deione, and hence Deionides. A different genealogy and story about him is preserved in Antonius Liberalis (30).
