EURYALUS

ΕΥΡΥΑΛΟΣ

1. A son of Mecisteus, is mentioned by Apollodorus (i. 9. § 16) among the Argonauts, and was one of the Epigoni who took and destroyed Thebes. (Paus. ii. 20. § 4; Apollod. iii. 7. § 2.) He was a brave warrior, and at the funeral games of Oedipus he conquered all his competitors (Hom. Il. xxiii. 608) with the exception of Epeius, who excelled him in wrestling. He accompanied Diomedes to Troy, where he was one of the bravest heroes, and slew several Trojans. (Il. ii. 565, vi. 20; Paus. ii. 30. § 9.) In the painting of Polygnotus at Delphi, he was represented as being wounded; and there was also a statue of him at Delphi, which stood between those of Diomedes and Aegialeus. (Paus. x. 10. §2, 25. § 2.)

2. One of the suitors of Hippodameia. (Paus. vi. 21. § 7; Schol. ad Pind. Ol. i. 127.)

3. A son of Odysseus and Evippe, also called Doryclus or Leontophron, was killed by Telemachus. (Parthen. Erot. 3; Eustath. ad Hom. p. 1796.)

4. There are four other mythical personages of this name. (Apollod. i. 8. § 5; Hom. Od. viii. 115, &c.; Virg. Aen. ix. 176, &c.; Paus. iv. 20. § 3.) [See HYPERBIUS.]
