A Hyperborean hero, who, together with Hyperochus and Pyrrhus, came to assist the Delphians against the Gauls. A fourth phantom defender, Phylacus, is also mentioned. It should, however, be remarked, that in Pausanias the common reading is Amadocus (Ἁμαδόκος) or Laodocus (Λαοδόκος), where Müller writes Laodicus (Λαόδικος).
