(Ἄρχανδρος [Árchandros], Ἀρχιτέλης [Architélēs]).

[German version]

[1] Sons or Grandsons of Achaeus

Sons or grandsons of Achaeus. They move from Phthia to Argus, where Danaus gives them two of his daughters in marriage, whereby they become rulers of Argus and Lacedaemon and the inhabitants there become known as the Achaeans (Paus. 7,1,6 f.). The city in Lower Egypt known as Archandroupolis is supposed to have been named after Archander (Hdt. 2,98).
