Named for the son of the Phoenician king Agenor {see planet  (1873)}, and the brother of Europa {see planet  (52)}, Cilix and Phoenix. He was famous for the search for his sister Europa, whom Zeus {see planet  (5731)} carried away. Cadmus overcame a dragon at Thebes with the assistance of Athena {see planet  (881)} and sowed the dragon’s teeth on the plain. Immediately, a company of armed men sprang up, ready for attack. Cadmus cast a stone into their midst and, in the resulting confusion, all but five of the warriors slew each other. The survivors became allies of Cadmus and helped him build Thebes. Cadmus married Harmonia {see planet  (40)}, daughter of Aphrodite {see planet  (1388)}. It was he who introduced the use of letters into Greece. (M 29671; M 29691)
