Παρθενοπαῖος, son of Atalanta by Meilanion, her vanquisher in the foot-race. Another version made Ares the father. ἐπώνυμος τῆς πρόσθεν ἀδμήτης, “"so named after her who before was a virgin,"” χρόνῳ μητρὸς λοχευθείς, “"having been born of her when at last she became a mother."” χρόνῳ (437), after her long virginity. The gen. μητρός as O. T. 1082 “τῆς γὰρ πέφυκα μητρός”. In Aesch. Th. 536 this hero has “οὔ τι παρθένων ἐπώνυμον ι φρόνημα”: cp. Eur. Phoen. 1106 “ὁ τῆς κυναγοῦ”.
