He was the son of Hermes and Carmentis, a nymph skilled in the art of divination. Evander 2 married Carmenta and had a son Pallas 6 who became an ally of Aeneas in Italy. He also had a daughter Lavinia 1 who bore Heracles 1 a son Pallas 7 who died before he reached puberty and after whom Pallantium was called [DH.1.32.1; Ov.Fast.1.471ff., 1.521, 4.65, 5.90; Pau.8.43.2; Vir.Aen.8.52, 8.104, 8.336, 8.511].

Patron was an Arcadian who participated in the games held by Aeneas in Sicily, having come to Italy with Evander 2.

And Patron was a protector and defender of the poor and needy. He is also said to have guided Aeneas when he crossed the Ionian Gulf from Epirus to Italy [DH.1.51.2; Plu.Rom.13.2; Vir.Aen.5.298].
