Axylus

Axylus is mentioned in Book VI of Homer's Iliad.

 Diomedes, expert in war cries, killed Axylus, 

 son of Teuthranus, a rich man, from well-built Arisbe.

 People really loved him, for he lived beside a road, 

 welcomed all passers-by into his home.  

 But not one of those men he'd entertained now stood 

 in front of him, protecting him from wretched death.

 Diomedes took the lives of two men--Axylus,

 and his attendant Calesius, his charioteer.

 So both men went down into the underworld.
