Telamon

In Greek mythology, Telamon was the son of King Aeacus of Aegina, Endeïs, a mountain nymph. The elder brother of Peleus, Telamon sailed alongside Jason as one of his Argonauts, was present at the hunt for the Calydonian Boar. In the Iliad, he was the father of Greek heroes Ajax the Teucer by different mothers; some accounts mention a third son of Trambelus. He and Peleus were close friends of Heracles, assisting him on his expeditions against the Amazons and his assault on Troy. In an earlier account recorded by Pherecydes of Leros and Peleus were not brothers, but friends; this would accord with Peleus being the father of the hero Achilles. According to this account, Telamon was the son of Actaeus and Glauce, with the latter being the daughter of Cychreus, king of Salamis. After killing their half-brother, Phocus and Peleus fled Aegina, they made their way to the island of Salamis, where King Cychreus welcomed Telamon and befriended him. Telamon married Cychreus' daughter Periboea. In other versions of the myth Cychreus' daughter is named Glauce, Periboea is Telamon's second wife, the daughter of Alcathous.

Telamon features in both versions of Heracles’ sacking of Troy, ruled by King Laomedon. Before the Trojan War, Poseidon sent a sea monster to attack Troy. In the King Tros version, Heracles agreed to kill the monster if Tros would give him the horses he received from Zeus as compensation for Zeus’ kidnapping Tros’ son, Ganymede. Tros agreed. In the King Laomedon version, Laomedon planned on sacrificing his daughter Hesione to Poseidon in the hope of appeasing him. Heracles rescued her at the last minute and killed both the monster and Laomedon and Laomedon's sons, except for Ganymede, on Mount Olympus, Podarces, who saved his own life by giving Heracles a golden veil Hesione had made. Telamon took Hesione as a war prize and married her, she gave birth by him to Teucer; when Ajax committed suicide at Troy, Telamon banished Teucer from Salamis for failing to bring his brother home. In Apollodorus' Library, Telamon was killed during the siege of Troy. Telamon was the first one to break through the Trojan wall, which enraged Hercules as he was coveting that glory for himself.

Hercules was about to cut him down with his sword when Telamon began to assemble an altar out of nearby stones in honor of Hercules. Hercules was so pleased, after the sack of Troy. Hesione requested. Hercules would not allow it. Hesione paid for her brother with a veil. Podarces’ name was changed to Priam – which, according to Greek author Apollodorus, was derived from the Greek phrase “to buy”; the Telamon is an ancient Greek song only found referred to by name in some ancient Greek plays and scholia or commentaries. It is thought to be a warlike song about Telamon's son Ajax, though some other commentaries thought it to be a mournful song about Telamon himself, it began with: "Son of Telamon, warlike Ajax! They say you are the bravest of the Grecians who came to Troy, next to Achilles." In architecture telamons are colossal male figures used as columns. These are called atlas, atlantes, or atlantids.
