A noble Myrmidon fighter, Epeigeus was a son of Agakles. Before the Trojan War, he had ruled in the flourishing town of Boudeion, but there he slew a kinsman. As a suppliant to Peleus and Thetis {see planet  (17)}, he was enlisted along with Achilles {see planet  (588)} to make war against the Trojans. At Troy he was killed when Hector {see planet  (624)} hit him upon the crest of his helmet with a great stone. (M 25443)
