British - A man who was burned, hanged and drowned. Merlin prophesied that Argistes would die in such a fashion so Argistes set fire to Merlin's house. When his own house caught fire, he ran to the well for water, became entangled with the chain about his neck, fell into the water and burned to death when the blazing timbers of the house were tossed into the well. Occasionally referred to as Argistes.
