Hippolytus

???














Son of Theseus and the Amazon Antiope, with whom Phaedra [see entry], the second wife of Theseus fell madly in love. Hippolytus spurned her advances. From resentment of his scorn, Phaedra denounced him to Theseus as her seducer. Theseus in rage invoked the vengeance of Poseidon on Hippolytus and banished him. As Hippolytus was driving along the Troezenian shore in his chariot, a monster sent from the sea by Poseidon terrified the horses. Hippolytus was thrown from the chariot and was dragged to death among the rocks. Hippolytus was honoured by the Troezenians as a god and there existed a statue and a temple to him. [p. 65]
