Lykos

In Greek mythology, Lykos was one of the four sons of Pandion.

Upon the death of Pandion, Lykos and his brothers (Aegeas, Nisos, and Pallas) took control of Athens from Metion, who had seized the throne from Pandion. They divided the government in four but Aegeas became king.

He became the ancestor of the Lycians of Asia Minor.

Alternate: Lycus
