Ascalaphus of Orchomenus
In Greek mythology, Ascalaphus or Askalaphus (//; Ancient Greek: Ἀσκάλαφος Askalaphos), was son of Ares and Astyoche. Ascalaphus (sometimes Askalaphus) was king of Orchomenus, and twin brother of Ialmenos. He and his twin were counted among the Argonauts and the suitors of Helen, and led the Orchomenian contingent in the Trojan War, where Deiphobos threw a spear and killed him.
