Greek - Son of Heracles. Brother of Agathyrsus and Gelonus. On his way back to Greece after seizing Geryon's cattle, Heracles had his horses stolen by a snake-tailed woman (Echidna, some say) who returned the horses only when he slept with her. She bore him three sons. Scythes became the first king of Scythia. Sometimes identified as Scythes.
