In Greek mythology, Agenor (/əˈnɔːr/; Ancient Greek: Ἀγήνωρ 'heroic, manly')[1]  was a son of Pleuron and Xanthippe, and grandson of Aetolus.[2] Epicaste, the daughter of Calydon, became by him the mother of Porthaon and Demonice.[3] Agenor's siblings were Stratonice, Sterope and Laophonte. According to Pausanias, Thestius, the father of Leda, is likewise a son of this Agenor.[4]
