A daughter of Eurytion of Phthia, and wife of Peleus, by whom she became the mother of Polydora. When Peleus had killed Eurytion during the chase, and fled to Acastus at Iolcus, he drew upon himself the hatred of Astydameia, the wife of Acastus. In consequence of this, she sent a calumniatory message to Antigone, stating, that Peleus was on the point of marrying Sterope, a daughter of Acastus. Hereupon Antigone hanged herself in despair.
