POEMANDER

ΠΟΙΜΑΝΔΡΟΣ

A son of Chaeresilaus and Stratonice, was the husband of Tanagra, a daughter of Aeolus or Asopus, by whom he becamne the father of Ephippus and Leucippus. He was the reputed founder of the town of Tanagra in Boeotia which was hence called Poemandria. When Poemander inadvertently had killed his own son, he was purified by Elephenor.
