Greek - A friendly Centaur. Son of Silenus by an ash-nymph. While hunting the Erymanthian boar, Heracles stayed with Pholus in his cave. Other Centaurs, attracted by the smell of wine, attacked the cave and were driven off by Heracles. Pholus was killed when he accidentally dropped one of Heracles' poisoned arrows on his foot. Sometimes called Pholus, Pholos or Pholos.
