Agenor of Aetolia
In Greek mythology, Agenor (//; Ancient Greek: Ἀγήνωρ 'heroic, manly') was a son of Pleuron and Xanthippe, and grandson of Aetolus. His siblings were Stratonice, Sterope and Laophonte. Agenor married his cousin Epicaste, the daughter of Calydon, and became by him the mother of Porthaon and Demonice. According to Pausanias, Thestius, the father of Leda, was likewise a son of this Agenor.
