Greek - Husband of Galatea. Father of Leucippus. When his wife was expecting a child, he ordered her to kill it if it were a girl. When a girl was duly born, Galatea dressed it as a boy and reared it as such. When the truth became known, mother and child took refuge in the temple of Leto where Galatea prayed to the goddess who answered her prayers by turning the girl into a boy. In some lore, occasionally identified as Lamprus.
