or ALE'BION (Ἀλβίων or Ἀλεβίων), a son of Poseidon and brother of Dercynus or Bergion, together with whom he attacked Heracles, when he passed through their country (Liguria) with the oxen of Geryon. But they paid for their presumption with their lives. (Apollod. 2.5.10; Pomp. Mela, 2.5.39.) The Scholiast on Lycophron (648) calls the brother of Alebion, Ligys. The story is also alluded to in Hyginus (Poet. Astr. 2.6) and Dionysius. (1.41.)
