Strophius was the son of Croesus and king of Phocis in Greek mythology. He was married to Anaxibia, sister of Agamemnon and Menelaus, and the father of Pylades and Astydamia. He offered refuge to his nephew Orestes, after Orestes' uncle Aegisthus usurped the throne of Argos and started an affair with his mother Clytemnestra. It was during Orestes' time in Phocis that he formed a strong friendship with Pylades.
