In Greek mythology, Cephalion (Ancient Greek: Κεφαλίων), also called Caphaurus (Κάφαυρον), was the son of Amphithemis and the nymph Tritonis and the brother of Nasamon.[1]


Cephalion's family lived in Libya and he was a shepherd of whose flocks were plundered by the Argonauts Canthus and Eurybates (Eribotes). These two were later killed by Cephalion in revenge.[2]
