(Redirected from Solymos)Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Solymus, an ancestral hero and eponym of the Solymi, who inhabited Milyas (i.e the area around Solyma), in south-west Anatolia. He was a son of either Ares and Caldene, daughter of Pisidus, or of Zeus and Chaldene, Calchedonia or Chalcea "the nymph". Solymus was said to have married his own sister Milye, also a local eponymous heroine. Milye's second husband was named Cragus. It is unclear whether the name Solymus is derived from a mountain by the same name (now known as Güllük Dağ) in Anatolia, or vice versa.
- Solymus, mentioned by Ovid as a Phrygian companion of Aeneas and eponym of Sulmona.
