Nauplius, a son of Poseidon and Amymone, was king of Euboea and father of Palamedes. After a false accusation by Odysseus caused the death of Palamedes, Nauplius sailed to Troy to seek vengeance. But this was denied by Agamemnon, so Nauplius returned to Greece, together with his surviving son Oceax. However, Nauplius earned his revenge. He misled the Greeks returning from Troy by placing lights on the cliffs of his land, so that many ships ran aground.

Nauplius, a son of Poseidon {see planet  (4341)} and Amymone, was king of Euboea and father of Palamedes {see, respectively, planets  (1119) and  (2456)}.
