Greek - Eldest son of Augeas. Brother of Agamede and Agasthenes. Husband of Timandra. Father of Mages. His father had promised to give Heracles a tenth of his herds for cleansing his filthy stables but reneged on the promise. When Phyleus supported the claim of Heracles, Augeas banished him from Elis and he became king of Dulichium. Heracles later wreaked vengeance on Augeas and he then installed Phyleus as king of Elis. In other accounts, Agasthenes became king. Sometimes referred to as Phyleus.
