STYMPHALUS

ΣΤΥΜΦΑΛΟΣ

1. A son of Lycaon. (Apollod. iii. 8. § 1.)

2. A son of Elatus and Laodice, a grandson of Arcas, and father of Parthenope, Agamedes, and Gortys. (Apollod. ii. 7. § 8, iii. 9. § 1; Paus. viii. 4. § 3, 22. § 1.) Pelops, who was unable to conquer him in war, murdered him by stratagem, and cut his body in pieces. For this crime Greece was visited with a famine, which however was averted by the prayer of Aeacus. (Apollod. iii. 12. § 6.)
