Greek - Son of Lycurgus and Nemea. He was nursed by Hypsipyle but killed by a dragon or a snake-bite as an infant. The Seven Against Thebes took this as an omen of disaster and he was then referred to as Archemorus (forerunner of doom). Some say the Nemean Games are held in his honour. Occasionally identified as Opheltes, Archemorus, Archemorus or Arkhemorus.
