Oileus


Oileus

In Greek mythology, Oileus (or Oïleus (Ὀϊλεύς)) was the king of Locris. His father was given as Hodoedocus (whom Oileus succeeded as King of Locris) and his mother as Agrianome (daughter of Perseon), according to Hyginus's Fabulae. Oileus's wife was Eriopis, who bore him a son named Ajax. Oileus was also the father of Medon, who is usually regarded as illegitimate; Medon's mother was said to be a nymph named Rhene. Oileus was also an Argonaut.
