Greek - Son of Agamemnon by Cassandra. Twin brother of Teledamus. Odysseus took Cassandra and her two sons back to Greece after the fall of Troy. All four were killed by Clytemnestra and Aegisthus. Also commonly referred to as Pelops.
Greek - King of Pisa. Son of Tantalus and Dione. Brother of Niobe. Husband of Euryanessa or Hipppodamia. Father of Alcathous, Astydamia, Atreus, Chrysippus, Copreus, Epidaurus, Lysidice, Nicippe, Pittheus, Sicyon, Troezen and Thyestes. When Tantalus found himself short of food at a banquet he had laid on for the gods, he killed his son Pelops, cut him up and served him in a stew. The only one to eat any of the portions was Demeter (or Thetis, some say) who ate the shoulder. The gods restored Pelops to wholeness with Demeter contributing a new shoulder made of ivory and Poseidon carried the restored youth off to Olympus. He fell in love with Hippodamia and won her hand after beating her father, Oenomaus, in a chariot race, driving a magic chariot given to him by Poseidon. Pelops had promised to allow Myrtilus, her father's charioteer, to sleep with Hippodamia, so persuading Myrtilus to sabotage her father's chariot. When it broke down, Pelops killed Oenomaus but afterwards reneged on his promise to Myrtilus and kicked him into the sea. Purified by Hephaestus he assumed the throne of Pisa. On his death he was taken up to Olympus as an immortal. Some say that he was carried off by Poseidon to be his cup-bearer. In some lore, occasionally identified as Pelops.
