2. A son of Elatus and Laodice, a grandson of Arcas, and father of Parthenope, Agamedes, and Gortys. (Apollod. 2.7.8, 3.9.1; Paus. 8.4.3, 22.1.) Pelops, who was unable to conquer him in war, murdered him by stratagem, and cut his body in pieces. For this crime Greece was visited with a famine, which however was averted by the prayer of Aeacus. (Apollod. 3.12.6.)
