Alebion

Alebion

[uh-lee-bee-on]
In Greek mythology, Alebion or Albion ({{lang-grc|Ἀλεβίων} or Ἀλβίων) was a son of Poseidon and brother of Dercynus (also called Bergion) who attacked Heracles with Dercynus when he passed through their country, Liguria, with the oxen of Geryon. Both of the brothers were killed by Heracles. The Scholiast on Lycophron writes that the brother of Alebion was named Ligys. The story is also alluded to in Hyginus and Dionysius.
