A son of Lycaon, a Lycian, commanded the inhabitants of Zeleia on Mount Ida, in the Trojan war. He was distinguished in the Trojan army as an archer, and was said to have received his bow from Apollo. He was slain by Diomedes, or, according to others, by Sthenelus. He was afterwards honored as a hero at Pinara in Lycia.
