In Greek mytholog, Taphius (gr. Τάφιος) founded the city Taphos on the island of the same name, and was its king. He also gave his name to the Taphians, a people that inhabited Taphos and nearby islands, which formed part of Odysseus's kingdom at the time of the Trojan War. According to one genealogy, Taphius was the son of Poseidon and Hippothoe (daughter of Mestor, son of Perseus). However, according to another (more plausible) genealogy Taphius's father was named Pterelaus, who ruled in Acarnania, and this Pterelaus was a son of Lelex. Both versions agree that Taphius had a son, also called Pterelaus ('Pterelaus II').
