Ilione

Greek - Daughter of Priam and Hecuba. Sister of Polydorus. Wife of Polymestor. Mother of Deipylus. When her younger brother, Polydorus, was sent to the court of her husband, Polymestor, for safety during the siege of Troy, she reared him as her own. Her husband planned to kill Polydorus in order to take the treasure he had brought with him but Ilione substituted Deipylus who was killed by his own father. In some accounts, she was the sister of Hecuba. In some lore, occasionally identified as Ilione, Iliona or Iliona.
