A Centaur who was present at the wedding between Pirithous and Hippodamia. He was not good with wine and became drunk very easily. He and another Centaur named Eurytion insulted the bride and tried to carry her off. This started a fight to which King Pirithoas asked Theseus to expel the Centaur from the feast. Theseus did so but Eurytion came back with an army of Centaurs, still drunk and aggressive. In the ensuing fight, one Centaur died and the rest fled to the foothills of Mount Pindus.
