A surname of Apollo, under which he was worshiped, and had a temple at Pyrrhichus in Laconia. The name was derived either from the belief that the Amazons had penetrated into the Peloponnese as far as Pyrrhichus, or that they had founded the temple there. He was represented by a wooden image, dedicated by the women from Thermodon.
