Who are Bellerophon's parents?
September 09, 2010 2:03AM
His parents are Eurynome (mother) and Poseidon (father), but Bellerophon is raised by Eurynome's husband, Glaucus. Glaucus was cursed by Athena to never be able to father a child.
Glaucus tended to feed his horses human flesh, which angered the gods. Eventually, he was thrown from his chariot and his horses ate him.
His father, Sisyphus, also angered the gods- he betrayed Zeus and was punished by being made to roll a rock uphill for eternity.
