In Greek mythology, Sicyon (//; Ancient Greek: Σικυών) is the eponym of the polis of the same name, which was said to have previously been known as Aegiale and, earlier, Mecone. His father is named variously as Marathon, Metion, Erechtheus or Pelops. Sicyon married Zeuxippe, the daughter of Lamedon, the previous king of the polis and region that would come to be named after him. They had a daughter Chthonophyle, who bore two sons: Polybus to Hermes and, later, Androdamas to Phlius, the son of Dionysus. Stephanus of Byzantium (s.v. Phlius) and the scholia to Apollonius of Rhodes, Argonautica 1.115, however, say that she bore Phlius to Dionysus.
