From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bounos or Bunus son of Hermes and Alcidamia received the throne of Ephyra (an early name of Corinth) from Aeëtes, when the latter decided to migrate to Colchis, biding him to keep it until he or his children came back. He is said to have built a sanctuary to Hera Bunaea on the road which led up to Acrocorinthus. After the death of Bounus, Epopeus of Sicyon, who had come from Thessaly, extended his own kingdom to include Corinth.
