Aspledon, town in Boeotia in Ancient Greece.

The name is derived from Aspledon, a mythological person.

Aspledon was mentioned by Homer in Iliad Book 2:

Men from Aspledon and Minyan Orchomenus
were led by Ascalaphus and Ialmenus, 
Ares' sons. Astyoche bore them in Actor's house,
Azeus' son, to mighty Ares. She, a modest virgin,
went upstairs, where the god lay with her in secret.  
These men brought with them a fleet of thirty ships.
