There are a number of figures in Greek mythology by the name of Alcathous. One of them was the son of Pelops, who killed the Cithaeronian lion. Another one was the husband of Hippodamia, and he participated in the Trojan War, defending Troy. He was killed by the king of Crete Idomeneus, who was aided by Poseidon. A different Alcathous, son of Porthaon and Euryte, was killed by Tydeus, although other versions have him killed by Oenomaus, after he unsuccessfully tried to become the husband of Hippodamia. More characters by the same name appear in different myths, but they all had minor roles.
