A Dymaean, loved by Herakles, his tomb.
Dymas, (Dumas), a son of Aegimius, and brother of Pamphylus and Hyllus. The three
tribes into which each Doric state was divided, derived their names from these
three brothers, and were called accordingly Hylleis, Dymanes, and Pamphyli. Dymas
and Pamphylus were believed to have lived from the time of Heracles until the
conquest of Peloponnesus, when both fell. (Apollod ii. 8.3; Schol. ad Pind. Pyth.
li. 121, where the third brother is called Dorus; Paus. vii. 16.3.) There are
three other mythical personages of this name. (Hom. Il. xvi. 719; Apollod. iii.
12.5 ; Ov. Met. xi. 761; Hom. Od. vi. 22; Virg. Aen. ii 310, 428.)
