???











The son of Thyestes and of his daughter Pelopeia who according to the legend was raped by him without his knowing that it was his daughter. Aegisthus reigned at Mycenae with his father Thyestes after having slain his uncle Atreus. Agamemnon expelled him and when the former was absent at Troy, Aegisthus lived in sin with Clytemnestra with whose connivance he murdered the lawful king upon his return from troy. Aegisthus in turn was slain by Orestes, son of Agamemnon to avenge his father's death. [p. 58]
