1. King of Ialysus in Rhodes (contemporary with Ardys, king of Lydia, and Phraortes, king of Media), married, in obedience to the Delphic oracle, the daughter of Aristomenes of Messene, and from this marriage sprung the family of the Diagoridae, who were celebrated for their victories at Olympia. [ARISTOMENES.] The following is their genealogy.
In this pedigree the name of the first Diagoras is inserted by Clavier and Clinton, to supply one generation, which seems to be wanting in Pausanias.
