PHAESTOS

ΦΑΙΣΤΟΣ

1. A son of Rhopalus, and grandson of Heracles, was king of Sicyon, from whence he emigrated to Crete. (Paus. ii. 6. § 3.) He is said to have established at Sicyon the custom of worshipping Heracles as a god, since before he had only been honoured as a hero. (Paus. ii. 10. § l; Eustath. ad Hom. p. 313.)

2. A second Phaestus was a son of Borus, of Tarne, in Maeonia, and was slain by Idomeneus at Troy (Hom. Il. v. 431.)
