Absyrtus

The Golden Fleece by Herbert James Draper (1904)

In Greek mythology, Absyrtus (Ancient Greek: Ἄψυρτος) or Apsyrtus, was a Colchian prince.

Family

Absyrtus was the son of Aeëtes, king of Colchis and a brother of Medea and Chalciope. His mother is variously given: Hyginus calls her Ipsia,[1] Hesiod and the Bibliotheca call her Idyia,[2][3][4] Apollonius calls her Asterodeia, a Caucasian Oceanid[5] and others Hecate[6][7], the Nereid Neaera[8][9] or Eurylyte[10][11].

A tradition followed by Pacuvius,[3] Justin,[12] and Diodorus,[6] provided Aegialeus as the name of the son of Aeëtes who was murdered by Medea.[13] Absyrtus was also called Phaethon by the sons of the Colchians because he outshone all the youths.[14]
