From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Greek mythology, the name Hyperochus (Ὑπέροχος) may refer to:
- Hyperochus, a descendant of Magnes, son of Haemon, father of Tenthredon and thus grandfather of Prothous.
- Hyperochus, a Hyperborean whose ghost, alongside those of Pyrrhus (Neoptolemus) and a fellow Hyperborean Amadocus (or Laodocus), and possibly that of Phylacus, were believed to have terrorized the Gaul invaders during the historical battle at Delphi.
Hypeirochus (Ὑπείροχος) is a variant of the same name which refers to:
- Hypeirochus, a defender of Troy killed by Odysseus; may or may not be the same as the son of Priam.
- Hypeirochus, father of Itymoneus; the latter was killed by Nestor in the war between the Pylians and the Eleans.
