Son of Silvius, and grandson of Ascanius. He is the third in the list of the mythical kings of Alba in Latium, and the Silvii regarded him as the founder of their house.1 Dionysius2 ascribes to him a reign of thirty-one years.3 His son is Latinus Silvius.

Ovid4 does not mention him among the Alban kings.
