[German version] (Ἰάλμενος;
Iálmenos). Son of Ares and Astyoche. Along with his twin brother Ascalaphus , he led the Minyan contingent at Troy (Hom. Il. 2, 511), and is therefore also mentioned as a suitor of Helen (Apollod. 3,130). After the capture of Troy, he makes his home in the Crimean region with Minyan settlers (Pherecydes, FGrH 3 F 143; Str. 9,2,42). Like his brother, I. was probably a figure of pre-Iliadic myth.
