The son of Pylaemenes, king of Paphlagonia, who joined the Trojans along with his father. He fought Menelaus, but was unable to pierce his shield and to save his life drew back. As he was leaving the field he was killed by Meriones with a bronze-tipped arrow. Paris was deeply grieved by the death of Harpalion, who was his host when he went among the Paphlagonians.
