ASTEROPAEUS

ΑΣΤΕΡΟΠΑΙΟΣ

A son of Pelegon, and grandson of the river-god Axius, was the commander of the Paeonians in the Trojan war, and an ally of the Trojans. He was the tallest among all the men, and fought with Achilles, whom he at first wounded, but was afterwards killed by him. (Hom. Il. xxi. 139, &c.; Philostr. Heroic. xix. 7.)
