  • Schedius was the son of Iphitus by Hippolyte or Thrasybule and brother of Epistrophus.[1][2] He was counted among the suitors of Helen.[3] In the Iliad, he and his brother lead the Phocians on the side of the Achaeans in the Trojan War,[4] Schedius being commander of ten ships out of forty brought by both brothers.[1] He was killed when Hector threw a spear at Ajax, who dodged it.[5]
  • Schedius, son of Perimedes, was a leader of the Phocians. He was killed by Hector.[6]
