1. A daemon of the lower world, concerning whom there was a tradition at Delphi, according to which, he devoured the flesh of dead human bodies, and left nothing but the bones. Polygnotus represented him in the Lesche at Delphi, of a dark-blue complexion, showing his teeth, and sitting on the skin of a vulture. (Paus. x. 28. § 4.)

2. There are two other mythical personages of this name, one mentioned by Ovid (Met. xii. 311) and the other in the Odyssey (ii. 22).
