Ismarus was in the land of the Cicones close to the sea and was sacked by Odysseus (Od. 9.40). Near the city there was a wooded grove of Phoebus Apollo, where the priest Maro lived, who had given to Odysseus a goatskin of wine, which the latter gave to the Cyclops Polyphemus (Il. 9. 198).
He was the father of Maro (Od. 9.197).
He was the son of Euanthes and priest of Apollo at Ismarus (Od. 9.197).
