From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Greek mythology, there were five people named Melanippus (Μελάνιππος):

  1. Son of Agrius, killed by Heracles.
  2. Son of Perigune and Theseus.
  3. Son of Astacus, defended Thebes in Seven Against Thebes. In Aeschylus' play, he defended the Proitid gate against Tydeus. He killed two of the seven attacking champions, Mecisteus and Tydeus, but was killed by either Amphiaraus or by Tydeus as he died, who then ate Melanippus' brains.
  4. Son of Hicetaon, a Trojan prince killed by Antilochus during the Trojan War.
  5. One of the 50 sons of Priam.
