Mygdon of Phrygia

In Greek mythology, King Mygdon (Μύγδων in Greek; gen.: Μύγδονος) of Phrygia was a son of Acmon and father of Coroebus by his wife Anaximene. He led a force of Phrygians against the Amazons alongside his comrades Otreus (another Phrygian leader) and King Priam of Troy, one generation before the Trojan War. Priam mentions this to Helen of Troy in Book 3 of The Iliad.
