In Greek mythology, Tremilus (Ancient Greek: Τρεμίλου or Τρέμιλος Tremilos) or Tremiles (Τρεμίλης) was the eponym of Tremile which was afterwards called Lycia. He was married to the nymph Praxidice, daughter of Ogygus, on silver Sibros beside the whirling river. The couple had four sons: Tloos,[1] Xanthus, Pinarus and Cragus.

MythologyEdit

When Tremiles died, Bellerophontes renamed the Tremileis Lycians. Hekataios calls them Tremilas in the 4th book of his Genealogies.[2]
