ΛΙΧΑΣ

He brought to his master the deadly garment, and as a punishment, was thrown by him into the sea, where the Lichadian islands, between Euboea and the coast of Locris, were believed to have derived their name from him. (Ov. Met. ix. 155, 211, &c.; Hygin. Fab. 36; Strab. ix. p. 426, x. p. 447.)

2. A Latin of the same name occurs in Virgil. (Aen. x. 315.)
