ΙΑΠΥΞ

1. A son of Lycaon and brother of Daunius and Peucetius, who went as leaders of a colony to Italy. (Anton. Lib. 31.) According to others, Iapyx was a Cretan, and a brother of Icadius (Serv. ad Aen. iii. 332), or a son of Daedalus and a Cretan woman, from whom the Cretans who migrated to Italy derived the name of Iapyges.
