Hylas was a youth in Greek mythology, who accompanied the hero Heracles, in Greek mythology. He was the son of King Theiodamas and her wife. After Heracles had a dispute with Theiodamas, leading to the death of the latter, Hylas was taken as a companion of Heracles and was taught to become a warrior. When the demigod embarked on the Argonautic Expedition along with Jason, he took Hylas with him. During that journey, Hylas was abducted by the Nereid nymphs of the spring of Pegae. Despite Heracles' efforts, Hylas was nowhere to be found; he remained with the nymphs with whom he had fallen in love.
