Sinis

Σίνις) or Sinnis (Σίννις). Son of Polypemon, Pemon, or Poseidon, by Sylea, the daughter of Corinthus. He was a robber, who frequented the Isthmus of Corinth, and killed the travellers whom he captured by fastening them to the top of a fir-tree, which he bent, and then let spring up again. He himself was killed in this manner by Theseus. See Apollod. iii.16.2; Pausan. ii. 1, 3; and Theseus.
