PHLIAS

ΦΛΙΑΣ

A son of Dionysus and Chthonophyle, also called Phlius, was a native of Araithyrea in Argolis, and is mentioned as one of the Argonauts. (Apollon. Rhod. i. 115, with the Schol.; Paus. ii. 12. § 6; Val. Flacc. i. 411.) According to Pausanias, he was a son of Ceisus and Araithyrea, and the husband of Chthonophyle, by whom he became the father of Androdamas and Hyginus (Fub. 14) calls him Phliasus, and a son of Dionysus and Ariadne. The town of Phlius (formerly called Araithyrea) was believed to have derived its name from him. (Steph. Byz. s. v. Phlious.)
