The son of Leucippus. He was the king of Naxos and it was during his reign that Theseus, on his voyage back from Crete together with Ariadne, was entertained as a guest by the inhabitants of the island. Theseus, seeing in a dream Dionysus threatening him if he would not forsake Ariadne in favor of the god, left her behind there.
