A son of Theseus and the Amazon Hippolyte, who was killed by HeraclesTheseus' later wife Phaedra, a daughter of Minos, fell in love with Hippolytus, who rejected her advances.  She told Theseus the exact opposite had occurred.  Angry, he banished Hippolytus.  As he was leaving Athens, Theseus used one of the wishes granted to him by Poseidon to cause a sea monster to kill Hippolytus.  Only too late learned of the truth from Artemis.  Hippolytus was brought back to life, however, by Asclepius, who was then in turn killed by Zeus for his actions.
