Telamon

Telamon (tĕlˈəmŏn) [key], in Greek mythology, son of Aeacus and father of Ajax. He and Peleus killed their half-brother Phocus and were banished from Aegina. Telamon fled to Salamis, where he became king. For his aid to Hercules against Laomedon, Hercules rewarded him with Laomedon's daughter, Hesione, who bore him Teucer.
