Actor, a king of Phthia, was said to be the son of King Myrmidon and Peisidice, daughter of Aeolus.[2] Some say that Actor died childless, but others say that he is the father of Eurytion, his successor or of Irus, who was also called the father of Eurytion.[3][4] According to Diodorus, Actor without an heir, was succeeded by Peleus who fled to his country from Aegina for killing his half-brother, Phocus. The hero was then purified by the king for his sins.[5] This story was usually attributed to Actor's possible son Eurytion who was slew accidentally by his son-in-law Peleus.[6]
