*Podalei/rios), a son of Asclepius and Epione or Arsinoe, and a brother of Machaon, along with whom he led the Thessalians of Tricca against Troy (Hom. Il. 2.729, &c.; Apollod. 3.10.8; Paus. 4.31.9). He was, like his brother, skilled in the medical art (Hom. Il. 11.832, &c.). On his return from Troy he was cast by a storm on the coast of Syros in Caria, where he is said to have settled (Paus. 2.26.7, 3.26.7). He was worshipped as a hero on mount Dria. (Strab. vi. p.284.)

Another mythical personage of this name occurs in Virgil. (Aen. 12.304.)
