HYPERES

ΥΠΕΡΗΣ

1. A son of Poseidon and Alcyone, and king of Troezene, from whom the town of Hypereia derived its name. (Paus. ii. 30. 7.) The island of Calauria, off the coast of Troezene, was likewise believed to have received from him the name of Hypereia (Plut. Quaest. Gr. 19). Stephanus Byzantinus (s.v. Huperêsia) and Eustathius (ad Hom. pp. 291, 332) call him a son of Lycaon.

2. A son of Melas and Eurycleia, who dwelt near the well of Hypereia near Pherae, which derived its name from him. (Schol ad Pind Pyth. iv. 221.)
