Aeetes a.k.a. Aeëtes: In Greek mythology, Aeëtes was a King of Colchis, son of the sun-god Helios and the Oceanid Perseis, brother of Circe and Pasiphaë, and father of Medea, Chalciope and Absyrtus. His consorts were Eidyia and either Asterodia the Oceanid, Neaera the Nereid. According to others, he was brother of Perses, a king of Tauris, husband of his niece Hecate, and father of Medea, Chalciope and Absyrtus. Yet other versions make Aeëtes a native of Corinth and son of Ephyra, or else of a certain Antiope.
