The name is that of the wisest and most just of the Centaurs, son of Kronos and the ocean nymph Philyra. Beloved by Apollo and Diana {see planets  (1862) and  (78), respectively}, he learned from them botany, music, astronomy, divination and medicine and served in turn as instructor of the Greek heroes.
