Aphareus of Messenia

In Greek mythology, was a Messenian king. Aphareus was brother of Leucippus, he was the husband of Arene, daughter of Oebalus, by her fathered Lynceus and Peisus, though some report that Idas' actual father was Poseidon while Pisus was identified as the son of his father Perieres and thus his brother according to another author. Some called Aphareus' wife to be Laocoosa; the patronymic Apharetidae, derived from the name of Aphareus, is sometimes used to refer to Idas and Lynceus collectively. It is said that Aphareus together with his brother Leucippus inherited their father's kingdom upon his death, but the former kept the greater authority than the latter. Aphareus was credited with founding the city Arene in Messenia, named after his wife; when Hippocoon usurped the throne of Sparta, Tyndareus fled to his brother Aphareus in Messenia where he settled in Thalamae and while living there, children were born to him. Aphareus received into his house his cousin Neleus, driven out of Iolcus by Pelias, assigned to him a tract of land in the maritime part of Messenia, where the main city was Pylos.

In the same fashion, Aphareus welcomed in Arene the exiled Lycus, son of Pandion who fled from his brother Aegeus in Athens. Lycus revealed the rites of Demeter to Aphareus and his family. After the death of his sons and Lynceus with their fight against the Dioscuri, the Messenian kingdom was bereft of male descendants and thus, son of Neleus obtained the whole land including all the part ruled by Idas, but not that subject to the sons of Asclepius and Podalirius.
