Αρχηγοί των Ελλήνων στον πόλεμο της Τροίας

Πρωτεσίλαος & Λαοδάμια

Γιος του Ιφίκλου και αρχηγός των Θεσσαλών από τη Φυλάκη, Πύρασο, Ιτων, Αντρών και Πτελεό με 40 πλοία, ο πρώτος Ελληνας που σκοτώθηκε στον Τρωϊκό Πόλεμο (Β 695 κ.ε., Ν 681).

Protesilaus. The son of Iphiclus and Astyoche, dwelling in Phylace in Thessaly. He is called Phylacius and Phylacides, either from his native place or from his being a grandson of Phylacus. He led the warriors of several Thessalian towns against Troy, and was the first of all the Greeks who was killed by the Trojans, being the first who leaped from the ships upon the Trojan coast. According to the common tradition he was slain by Hector. Protesilaus is most celebrated in ancient story for the strong affection existing between him and his wife Laodamia, the daughter of Acastus. His tomb was shown near Eleus, in the Thracian Chersonesus, where a magnificent temple was erected to him. There was a belief that nymphs had planted elm-trees around his grave, which died away when they had grown sufficiently high to see Troy, and that fresh shoots then sprang from the roots. There was also a sanctuary of Protesilaus at Phylace, at which funeral games were celebrated.

Laodamia. A daughter of Acastus and Astydamia, and wife of Protesilaus. (See Protesilaus.) When she received intelligence of the death of her husband in the Trojan War, she caused an image of him to be formed, which she would never allow to be out of her sight. Her father ordered the image to be burned, that her [p. 921] thoughts might be diverted from her loss; but Laodamia threw herself into the flames, and perished along with it. Thence probably the tradition adopted by some poets that the gods restored life to Protesilaus for three hours, and that this hero, finding the decree irreversible, by which he was to return to the shades below, prevailed on Laodamia to accompany him thither. She was also called Phylaces

Φύλακος & Κλυμένη

Ο Φύλακος, γιος του Δηίονος και της Διομήδης, ήταν πατέρας του Ιφίκλου (Ιλ. Β 705, Οδ. ο 231) και ιδρυτής της πόλης, που πήρε το όνομά του. Σύζυγός του ήταν η Κλυμένη (Οδ. λ 325).

Clymene, a daughter of Iphis or Minyas, and the wife of Phylacus or Cephalus, by whom she became the mother of Iphiclus and Alcimede (Paus. x. 29.2; Hom. Od. xi. 325; Schol. ad Apollod.Rhod. i. 45, 230). According to Hesiod (ap. Eustath. ad Hom.; comp. Ov. Met. i. 756, iv. 204), she was the mother of Phaethon by Helios, and according to Apollodorus (iii. 9.2), also of Atalante by Jasus.



Γιος του Φυλάκου, πατέρας του Πρωτεσίλαου και του Ποδάρκη (Ιλ. Β 705, Ψ 636, Οδ. λ 289).

Iphicles. A son of Phylacus, and grandson of Deion and Clymene, or, according to others, a son of Cephalus and Clymene, the daughter of Minyas. He was married to Diomedeia or Astyoche,and was the father of Podarcesand Protesilaus (Hom. Il. ii. 705, xiii. 698; Apollod. i. 9. Β 12; Paus. iv. 36. Β 2; x. 29. Β 2; Hygin. Fab. 103). He was, like the two other Iphicles, one of the Argonauts, and possessed large herds of oxen, which he gave to Melampus, who had given him a favourable prophecy respecting his progeny (Hom. Il. ii. 705, Od. xi. 289, &c.). He was also celebrated for his swiftness in racing, by which he won the prize at the funeral games of Pelias, but in those of Amarynceus he was conquered by Nestor (Paus. v. 17. Β 4, 36. Β 2. x. 29. Β 2; Hom. Il. xxiii. 636).
