2. A son of Haemon (according to Apollod. ii. 8. § 3, of Andraemon), and husband of Pieria, by whom he became the father of Aetolus and Laïas. He was descended from a family of Elis, but lived in Aetolia; and when the Dorians invaded Peloponnesus, they, in accordance with an oracle, chose him as one of their leaders.
