Po'lybus

5. The king of Corinth, by whom Oedipus was brought up. He was the husband of Periboea or Merope. (Soph. Oed. Rex, 770; Apollod. iii 5.7.) Pausanias (2.6.3), makes him king of Sicyon, and describes him as a son of Hermes and Chthonophyle, and as the father of Lysianassa, whom he gave in marriage to Talaus, king of the Argives. (Comp. OEDIPUS.)
