One of the sons of Heracles, was king of Sicyon, from whence he emigrated to Crete in obedience to an oracle. He is said to have established at Sicyon the custom of worshiping Heracles as a god, since before he had only been honored as a hero.

After his departure to Crete he was succeeded by Zeuxippus.
