Greek - King of Mycenae. Son of Perseus and Andromeda. Brother of Sthelenus. Husband of Anaxo. Father of Alcmene. His eight real sons (or six in some versions) were killed by cattle-raiders but Lycimnus, an illegitimate son by his concubine Midea, survived and avenged their deaths by conquering the raiders' lands. Electryon was accidentally killed when a club thrown by Amphitryon rebounded off the horn of a cow and struck him. Referred to as Electryon.
