Encyclopedia > Althaemenes

In Greek mythology, Althaemenes was a son of Catreus and brother of Apemosyne.


An oracle told Althaemenes that he would murder his own father. Althaemenes took Apemosyne and left Crete for Rhodes. A despondent Catreus sailed the seas searching for his children. In the middle of the night, his ship stopped at Rhodes and was mistaken for a pirate ship. Althaemenes and others attacked the ship, and the prophesy came to pass; Catreus died at the hands of his son.

Althaemenes (414 words)
In Greek mythology, Althaemenes was a son of Catreus, brother of Apemosyne, Aerope and Clymene.
Althaemenes and others attacked the 'invaders', and the prophecy came to pass; Catreus died at the hands of his son, from a javelin blow.
Now Catreus hid the oracles, but Althaemenes heard of them, and fearing to be his father's murderer, he set out from Crete with his sister Apemosyne, and put in at a place in Rhodes, and having taken possession of it he called it Cretinia.
