Named for the commander of the Greek islanders who dwelt off Elis, on the west coast of Peloponnese; he sailed for Troy with forty ships, and killed Amphiklos. Later Meges, with Thoas {see planet  (4834)}, was part of the Greek delegation that persuaded Achilles {see planet  (588)} to return to battle. (M 18647)
