(Κίναδος, Kínados, ‘Fox’). One of the helmsmen of Menelaus. His tomb is said to have existed on the Laconian foothills of the Onugnathus (‘Donkey chin’) opposite the island of Cythera, not far from a shrine to Athena, supposedly built by Agamemnon (Paus. 3,22,10). In the ‘Odyssey (Hom. Od. 3,282) he is called Phrontis; however, this person was buried on Cape Sunium.
