] He was the son of either Zeus and Protogeneia (daughter of Deucalion), ["Bibliotheca (Pseudo-Apollodorus)", i. 7. § 2] [Gaius Julius Hyginus, "Fabulae" 155] and was married to Calyce. According to some accounts, Endymion was himself a son of Zeus and first king of Elis. ["Bibliotheca (Pseudo-Apollodorus)", i. 7. § 5.] Other traditions again made Aethlius a son of Aeolus, who was called by the name of Zeus. [Pausanias, v. 8. § 1.]
