From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Greek mythology, Hippomedon was one of the Seven Against Thebes and father of Polydorus. His father was either Talaus, the father of Adrastus, or Aristomachus, his brother, and his mother may have been Metidice, Adrastus' sister. He lived either at Mycenae or near the lake Lerne in Peloponessus. In Aeschylus' tragedy Seven Against Thebes, Hippomedon is one of the seven champions who attack the seven gates of Thebes. Aeschylus describes him as very large and powerful. He bears a fire-breathing typhon on his shield and attacks the gate of Athena Onca, but is killed in the battle by Ismarus.
