Greek - A king of Euboea. Husband of Clymene or Hesione. Father of Oeax, Nausimedon and Palamedes. When Catreus tried to get rid of his four children to frustrate a prophecy that one of them would kill him, he charged Nauplius with selling two of his daughters into slavery. Instead, Nauplius gave one, Aerope, to Atreus (or, in some versions, Pleisthenes) and married the other, Clymene, himself, although some give his wife as Hesione. When his son, Palamedes was killed at Troy, he demanded satisfaction from the Greeks, who refused. In his bitterness, he lit false beacons which lured the ships returning from Troy to destruction. Some say that he died in the same way. In another story, he was entrusted with the sale of Auge and gave her to Teuthras who married her. In some accounts, he was the same as Nauplius, the Argonaut.
