Clymenus

Greek - A king of Argos. Father of Harpalyce. He had an incestuous love for his daughter, so when she married Alastor he seized her as she left with her husband, and kept her for himself. She killed her younger brother (or, some say, her own child by Clymenus) and served his flesh to her father at a banquet. In some accounts she was turned into an owl at her own request, in others Clymenus killed both his daughter and himself. A similar story is told of Epopeus and Nyctymene.
