- Dascylus, a king who ruled over Mysia or Mariandyne. He is presumably the eponym of the coastal city of Dascylaeum or Dascylium (but see below). The wife of Dascylus was Anthemoeisia, daughter of the river god Lycus, and he was the father of sons named Lycus, Priolas, and Otreus. Dascylus' own father was the infamous Tantalus. Priolas and Otreus were both killed by Amycus, king of Bebrycia (Bithynia); Otreus was killed while travelling to Troy to sue for the hand of King Laomedon's daughter Hesione in marriage. Both sons have names connected with local settlements: Priola, near Heraclea, and Otrea, on the Ascanian Lake.
