Amyntor

Greek - Son of Ormenus. Husband of Cleobule. Father of Astydamia (or Deidamia) and Phoenix. His father took a mistress and when Phoenix slept with her in an attempt to break the liaison his father cursed him to make him childless. In another version the concubine falsely accused Phoenix of sleeping with her, and his father blinded him. He was killed by Heracles when he denied Heracles the right to pass through his kingdom or for refusing to let him marry his daughter. Sometimes known as Amyntor.
