Philomela (mother of Patroclus)
In Greek mythology Philomela (Ancient Greek: Φιλομήλα) is identified by Gaius Julius Hyginus as the wife of Menoetius and mother of Patroclus. The former was one of the Argonauts and the latter a participant of the Trojan War. However the Bibliotheca listed three other wives of Menoetius and possible mothers of Patroclus:
- Periopis, daughter of Pheres, founder of Pherae.
- Polymele, daughter of Peleus, King of Phthia and an older half-sister to Achilles.
- Sthenele, daughter of Acastus and Astydameia.
