In the Iliad, he and his brother lead the Phocians on the side of the Achaeans in the Trojan War, Schedius being commander of ten ships out of forty brought by both brothers. He was killed when Hector threw a spear at Ajax, who dodged it. Both brothers' bones, were carried back and buried at Anticyra. Their tomb existed until the Roman times.
