A son of Pylas and grandson of Lelex. He was married to the daughter of Pandion, and disputed with her brother Nisus the government of Megara; but Aeacus, who was chosen umpire, decided that Nisus should have the government of Megara, and Sciron the command in war.

Other traditions called this Sciron the husband of Chariclo, and father of Endeïs.1
