In Greek mythology, Agenor (/əˈnɔːr/; Ancient Greek: Ἀγήνωρ 'heroic, manly')[1] was a son of Pleuron and Xanthippe, and grandson of Aetolus.[2] 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.[3] According to Pausanias, Thestius, the father of Leda, was likewise a son of this Agenor.[4]
