A cousin of Icarus {see planet  (1566)}, Talos was murdered by his uncle, Daedalus {see planet  (1864)}, through jealousy of his inventiveness. There is another Talos in legend, a living bronze work of art created by the god Hephaistos {see planet  (2212)}. Talos would run around the island of Crete and ward off strangers from its shores by throwing stones. Unwanted visitors unlucky enough to be caught would be held to his bosom, which he made red hot. It is believed that Talos is the winged figure, running with large strides and holding a stone in each hand, depicted in coins from the town of Phaestos. (M 23542) _ _.
