A Centaur who married Perithos the Lapith. He drank wine at the wedding, which made the Centaurs uncontrollably wild, and in drunken rage he started fighting the guests before being killed. There is also another Centaur of the same name who had a benign nature. He was very attractive and his horse part of his body was black except for his legs and tail which were white. He married the finest of all female Centaurs, Hylonome. The two lived happily together, roaming the hills and living comfortably in their cave. One day Cyllarus was struck by a javelin that wounded his lower stomach. He fell to the ground and died in the arms of his love.
