A mythical king of Corinth, a son of Lycaethus. (Hyginus1 calls him a son of Menoeceus, and thus confounds him with Creon of Thebes.) His daughter, Glauce, married Jason, and Medea, who found herself forsaken, took vengeance by sending Glauce a garment which destroyed her by fire when she put it on.

According to Hyginus2 Medea's present consisted of a crown, and Creon perished with his daughter, who is there called Creusa.3
