According to legend they were defeated by "Heracles or the "Dioscuri, who killed their king, "Mygdon or "Amycus. Their land was then given to King "Lycus of the "Mariandynians, who built the city "Heraclea there. Some say Amycus was a brother of Mygdon and another Bebrycian king; both were sons of "Poseidon and "Melia. Greek mythology offers two different accounts for the origin of the name 'Bebryces': either from a woman named Bebryce (Eustath. ad "Dionysius Periegetes 805.), or from a hero named "Bebryx (or Bebrycus) (Steph. Byz. s.v. Bebrycus). Bebryce is possibly the same as Bryce, a daughter of "Danaus, a mythical King of "Libya and "Arabia (Apollodorus). Bebryx was also the father of "Pyrene.
