C. and his brothers snatch the rulership from their uncle Oeneus, king of Aetolia, and lock him up; they make their father Agrius  king, until Diomedes frees his grandfather Oeneus and kills all of Agrius' sons except for two who are able to flee. Since Oeneus is too old, Diomedes hands over the rulership to Oeneus' son-in-law Andraemon  (Apollod. 1,77f.; Paus. 2,25,2; Hyg. Fab. 175).
