A son of Oxylus and Pieria, and brother of Laias. He died at a tender age, and his parents were enjoined by an oracle to bury him neither within nor without the town of Elis. They accordingly buried him under the gate at which the road to Olympia commenced.
The gymnasiarch of Elis used to offer an annual sacrifice on his tomb as late as the time of Pausanias.
