A daughter of Amyntor, king of the Dolopians in Thessaly, by Cleobule. She became by Heracles the mother of Tlepolemus.1 Other accounts differ from Pindar, for Hyginus2 calls the mother of Tlepolemus Astyoche, and Apollodorus3 calls the son of Astydameia Ctesippus.4

She is sometimes called Ormenis after her grandfather Ormenus.
