Amphilochus (son of Alcmaeon)
In Greek mythology, in a myth assigned to Euripides by the Bibliotheca, Amphilochus (Ancient Greek: Ἀμφίλοχος) was the son of Alcmaeon, one of the Epigoni, and Manto, the daughter of the Theban seer Teiresias. He was the brother of Tisiphone.
Manto was sent to Delphi and then to Caria, and Alcmaeon entrusts young Amphilochus and his sister, Tisiphone, to king Creon of Corinth to be raised, but the queen of Corinth sells Tisiphone into slavery. Alcmaeon eventually recovers his children (the story is told in Alcmaeon in Corinth a lost play by Euripides).
