Greek - King of Teuthrania in Mysia. Father of Argiope and Thespius. Father of Tecmessa, some say. Ajax raided his kingdom during the Trojan War, killed Teuthras and carried off his daughter, Tecmessa. In other accounts, Tecmessa was the daughter of Teleutas. He bought Auge as a slave and either married her or adopted her as his daughter. When Telephus, her son by Heracles, came to his court, he gave him Argiope as a wife and made him heir to the throne. Occasionally identified as Teuthras.
