ZAREX

ΖΑΡΕΞ

A hero who was believed to have been instructed in music by Apollo, and had an heroum near Eleusis. Pausanias (i. 38. § 4) takes him to be a Laconian hero, and the founder of the town of Zarex in Laconia. The scholiast on Lycophron (500) describes him as a son of Carystus or Carycus, as a grandson of Cheiron, and as the father of Anius by Rhoeo.
