In Greek mythology, Daedalion (Δαιδαλίων ) was a son of Hesperos and brother of Ceyx. He is described as a cruel and warlike man. His daugher Chione was so beautiful that both Apollo and Hermes impreganted her. She then became vain and boasted that she was more beautiful than Artemis. When Artemis killed her in revenge, Daedalion was so grief stricken that he threw himself off a cliff at Mt. Parnassoss, and Apollo turned him into a hawk.
