PANDION

ΠΑΝΔΙΩΝ

1. A son of Aegyptus and Hephaestine. (Apollod. ii. 1. § 5.)

2. A son of Phineus and Cleopatra. (Apollod. iii. 15. § 3; Schol. ad Soph. Ant. 980; comp. PHINEUS.)

3. One of the companions of Teucer. (Hom. Il. xii. 372.)

4. A son of Erichthonius, the king of Athens, by the Naiad Pasithea, was married to Zeuxippe, by whom he became the father of Procne and Philomela, and of the twins Erechtheus and Butes. In a war against Labdacus, king of Thebes, he called upon Tereus of Daulis in Phocis, for assistance, and afterwards rewarded him by giving him his daughter Procne in marriage. It was in his reign that Dionysus and Demeter were said to have come to Attica. (Apollod. iii. 14. § 6, &c.; Paus. i. 5. § 3; Thuc. ii. 29.)

5. A son of Cecrops and Metiadusa, was likewise a king of Athens. Being expelled from Athens by the Metionidae, he fled to Megara, and there married Pylia, the daughter of king Pylas. When the latter, in consequence of a murder, emigrated into Peloponnesus, Pandion obtained the government of Megara. He became the father of Aegeus, Pallas, Nisus, Lycus, and a natural son, Oeneus, and also of a daughter, who was married to Sciron (Apollod. iii. 15. § 1, &c.; Paus. i. 5. § 2, 29. § 5; Eurip. Med. 660). His tomb was shown in the territory of Megara, near the rock of Athena Aethyia, on the sea-coast (Paus. i. 5. § 3), and at Megara he was honoured with an heroum (i. 41. § 6). A statue of him stood at Athens, on the acropolis, among those of the eponymic heroes (i. 5. § 3, &c.).
