2. A son of Nomion, who together with his brother Nastes led a host of Carians to the assistance of the Trojans. He went to battle richly adorned with gold, but was thrown by Achilles into the Scamander. (Hom. Il. ii. 870, &c.) Conon (Narrat. 6) calls him a king of the Lycians.

3. Two other mythical personages of this name occur in Apollod. ii. 4. § 5, and Paus. v. 3. § 4. [See PALAEMON.]
