Greek - King of Thessaly. Son of Chryses. Son or father of Orchomenus, some say. Father of Alcithoe, Alsippe, Leucippe and Periclymene. Father of Clymene, some say. All his daughters, except one, were turned into bats (or birds) by Dionysus for refusing to join his revels. Others say that the god drove them mad so that they killed Leucippe's son, Hippasus, and the horrified Maenads put all three sisters to death. Some say that his daughter Clymene became the second wife of Cephalaus. Called Minyas.
