A son of Dardanus and Chryse, and brother of Deimas, went with his father from the Peloponnese, by way of Samothrace, to Phrygia, and settled on the mountains of Phrygia, which derived from him the name of Ida, or the Idaean mountains. He is further said to have instituted there the worship and mysteries of the Phrygian mother of the gods.
