MAGNES

ΜΑΓΝΗΣ

1. A son of Aeolus and Enarete, became the father of Polydectes and Dictys by a Naiad. (Apollod. i. 7. § 3, 9. § 6, i. 3. § 3.) The scholiast of Euripides (Phoen. 1760) calls his wife Philodice, and his sons Eurynomus and Eioneus; but Eustathius (ad Hom. p. 338) calls his wife Meliboea, and mentions one son Alector, and adds that he called the town of Meliboea, at the foot of mount Pelion, after his wife, and the country of Magnesia after his own name.

2. A son of Argos and Perimele, and father of Hymenaeus; from him also a portion of Thessaly derived its name Magnesia. (Anton. Lib. 3.)

3. A son of Zeus and Thyia, and brother of Macedon. (Steph. Byz. s. v. Makedonia, with the commentators.)
