In Greek mythology, Cynurus (Ancient Greek: Κύνουρος, Kúnouros) was a Mycenaean prince. He was the son of Perseus and Andromeda and thus brother of Perses, Alcaeus, Sthenelus, Electryon, Mestor, Heleus, Gorgophone and Autochthe. Cynurus was the eponymous founder of a city Cynura in Cynuria, Laconia, populated by Argive emigrants.[1][2]
