In Greek mythology, Cebriones (Ancient Greek: Κεβριόνης, Kebriones) was the illegitimate son of King Priam of Troy and a slave.[1][2]

Greek Mythology

Departure of Hector, Hecuba , Priam , Cebriones and others


In the Iliad he was the half-brother of Hector and his final charioteer during the Trojan War. Along with Hector and Paris he was part of the division that finally breached the Argive wall. Patroclus, the Achaean warrior, killed him by throwing a "shining stone," hitting him in the forehead and knocking his eyes out of his head. The force of the blow flung him from Hector's chariot, leading Patroclus to remark that with his great "diving" ability, he could have satisfied many by diving for oysters in the "storming sea".[3]

Cebriones was also the name of a giant featured in the Gigantomachy and mentioned in Artistophanes' play The Birds.
