||Bel*ler"o*phon (&?;), n. (Paleon.)
A genus of fossil univalve shells, believed to belong to the
Heteropoda, peculiar to the Paleozoic age.
- Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (1913)
, a mythical hero, son of Glaucus and grandson of
Sisyphus; having unwittingly caused the death of his brother, withdrew
from his country and sought retreat with Proetus, king of Argos, who,
becoming jealous of his guest, but not willing to violate the laws of
hospitality, had him sent to Iobates, his son-in-law, king of Lycia, with
instructions to put him to death. Iobates, in consequence, imposed upon
him the task of slaying the Chimæra, persuaded that this monster
be the death of him. Bellerophon, mounted on Pegasus, the winged horse
given him by Pallas, slew the monster, and on his return received the
daughter of Iobates to wife.
