He was sent for safety to Polymestor, king of Thrace, who had married Ilione, a sister of Polydorus, when the Greeks attacked Troy but he was treacherously killed when he was burying some treasure. A grove of trees grew from the handles of the spears that killed him. In another story, Polydorus was brought up by his sister, Ilione, as her own son, though some say that Ilione was his aunt, Hecuba's sister. She passed off her own son, Deipylus, as Polydorus and her husband, Polymestor, killed his own son in mistake for Polydorus who then induced Ilione to kill Polymestor. Yet another account says that Polymestor took Polydorus to Troy and offered to return him to Priam in exchange for Helen. When the Trojans refused the offer, Polymestor killed the boy.
