1. A son of Proetus, was king of Argos, and father of Anaxagoras and Iphianeira. (Paus. 2.18.4; Diod. 4.68.) He exchanged his dominion for that of Perseus, so that the latter received Tiryns instead of Argos. (Apollod. 2.4.4; Paus. 2.16.3.) He is said to have afterwards slain Perseus. (Hyg. Fab. 244.)
