Daughter of Iobates;wife of Bellerophon, 292;significance, 394.
At last King Iobates said he had nothing more for him to do.
Land ruled by Iobates, who sends Bellerophon to slay the Chimæra, 291, 295.
The king's name was Iobates, and Lycia was the country which he ruled over.
"Just the thing," said Iobates to himself, and sent for Bellerophon.
Iobates, in consequence, imposed upon him the task of slaying the Chimæra, persuaded that this monster would be the death of him.
Iobates next sent him on an expedition against the Solymans, a fierce neighbouring tribe with whom he was at enmity.
Iobates sent him to kill Chimæra, thinking he would be certain to perish in the attempt.
The king, Iobates, sought a hero to destroy this Chimæra, as it was called.
Iobates, who had become greatly attached to the youth, was horror-struck at its contents.
