Maeon

Μαίων), a son of Haemon of Thebes. He and Lycophontes were the leaders of the band that lay in ambush against Tydeus, in the war of the Seven against Thebes. Maeon was the only one whose life was spared by Tydeus, and when the latter fell, Macon is said to have buried him. (Hom. Il. 4.394, &c.; Apollod. 3.6.5; Paus. 9.18.2.) Another personage of this name occurs in Diodorus (3.58).
