Greek - Son of Poseidon by Melanippe. Brother of Boeotus. He and his brother Boeotus were abandoned, suckled by cows and sheltered by shepherds who gave them to Theano. When she had two sons of her own, by her husband Metapontus, she incited them to kill the foundlings but Poseidon intervened and killed Theano's sons. The brothers returned to the shepherds and Poseidon told them that their real mother, who had been blinded by her father Aeolus when they were born, had been imprisoned by her father. They killed their grandfather and freed Melanippe, who married Metapontus after Theano killed herself. In some accounts, Arne takes the place of Melanippe and Aeolus becomes the God of Winds on the floating island of Lipara.
