an autochthon and king of Attica, who reigned at the time of
the flood of Deucalion. He was
married to Pedias, by whom he became the father of Cranae,
Cranaechme, and Atthis, from the last of whom Attica was believed
to have derived its name. He was deprived of his kingdom by
Amphictyon, his son-in-law, and
after his death he was buried in the demos of Lamprae, where his
tomb was shown as late as the time of Pausanias.
