These were a race of six armed people who fought Jason and the Argonauts as they travelled through Bear Mountain in Mysia. They intercepted the Argonauts by throwing down large boulders to block their path and pen them by the beach. They ran down the mountain but Hercules took his bow and killed many of them. A whole army of them ran down the slopes pelting the Greeks with jagged rocks. The Greek soldiers held steadfast with shields and spears and they successfully repelled all the attacks of the Gegeness.
