Bathycles, son of Chalcon, one of the Myrmidons

Homer, Iliad 16.594

Glaucus, leader of the Lycian spearmen, was the first 
to turn around.  He killed great-hearted Bathycles,
Chalcon's dear son, who lived at home in Hellas,
a man pre-eminent among the Myrmidons
for a wealthy and successful life.  With his spear,
Glaucus turned suddenly, as Bathycles came up
in pursuit, then struck him in the middle of his chest.
He fell down with a crash.  Achaeans felt keen sorrow
that such a worthy man had fallen.
