Cyzicus & Cleite
Cyzicus (Kuzikos), a son of Aeneus and Aenete, the daughter of Eusorus (Apollon.
Rhod. i. 948; Val. Flacc. iii. 3). According to others, he was himself a son of
Eusorus, and others again make him a son of Apollo by Stilbe (Hygin. Fab. 16;
Conon, Narrat. 41; Schol. ad Apollon. Rhod.). He was king of the Doliones at Cyzicus
on the Propontis. In compliance with an oracle he received the Argonauts kindly,
when they landed in his dominion. When, after their departure, they were cast
back upon the shore by a storm and landed again at night-time, they were mistaken
by the Doliones for a hostile people, and a struggle ensued, in which Cyzicus
was slain by Heracles or Jason. On the next morning the mistake was discovered,
and the Argonauts mourned for three days with the Doliones over the death of their
king, and celebrated funeral games in his honour (Apollod. i. 9.18; Conon, Narrat.
41, who gives a different account).

Cleite (Kleite), a daughter of king Merops, and wife of Cyzicus. After the murder of her husband by the Argonauts she hung herself, and the tears of the nymphs, who lamented her death, were changed into the well of the name of Cleite. (Apollon. Rhod. i. 967, 1063, &c.)
