a son of Asclepius and Epione or Arsinoe, and a brother of Machaon, along with whom he led the Thessalians of Tricca against Troy (Apollodorus iii). He was, like his brother, skilled in the medical art.
On his return from Troy he was cast by a storm on the coast of
Syros in Caria, where he is said to have settled. He was
worshipped as a hero on mount Dria. Another mythical personage of
this name occurs in Virgil. (The
Aeneid by Virgil Book XII)
