Épiro

Agave 2. Daughter of Cadmus & Harmonia 1. When Dionysus 2 came to Thebes, he forced the women to abandon their houses and rave in Bacchic frenzy on Mount Cithaeron. As her son Pentheus 1, whom she had by the Sparti Echion 2 [see SPARTI], attempted to put a stop to these proceedings, he was torn limb from limb by his mother. She also killed king Lycotherses of Illyria, after having consorted with him, and gave the kingdom to her father [see also Pentheus 1]. Agave 2 had also a daughter Epirus [Apd.3.4.2, 3.5.2; Eur.Bacc. 1233 and passim; Hes.The.976; Hyg.Fab.184, 254; Nonn.5.199; Parth.32.4].

When he was a grown-up man his mother sent him to Ithaca to meet his father, but Penelope, having learned of her husband’s affair with Evippe 5, persuaded Odysseus, before he knew the facts of the case, to kill Euryalus 9, whom Odysseus thought to be engaged in a plot against him [Parth.3.1-3].
