HEGELEUS

ΗΓΕΛΕΩΣ

A son of Tyrsenus. Either he or Archondas is said to have given the trumpet (sapinx) which had been invented by Tyrsenus to the Dorians, when, commanded by Temenus, they marched against Argos. Hence Athena at Argos was believed to have received from him the surname of Salpinx. (Paus. ii. 21. § 3.)
