ACTOR

ΑΚΤΩΡ

1. A son of Deion and Diomede, the daughter of Xuthus. He was thus a brother of Asteropeia, Aenetus, Phylacus, and Cephalus, and husband of Aegina, father of Menoetius, and grandfather of Patroclus. (Apollod. i. 9. § 4, 16, iii. 10. § 8; Pind. Ol. ix. 75; Hom. Il. xi. 785, xvi. 14.)

2. A son of Phorbas and Hyrmine, and husband of Molione. He was thus a brother of Augeas, and father of Eurytus and Cteatus. (Apollod. ii. 7. § 2; Paus. v. 1. § 8, viii. 14. § 6.)

3. A companion of Aeneas (Virg. Aen. ix. 500), who is probably the same who in another passage (xii. 94) is called an Auruncan, and of whose conquered lance Turnus made a boast. This story seems to have given rise to the proverbial saying "Actoris spolium" (Juv. ii. 100), for any poor spoil in general.
