In Greek mythology, Talaus (Ancient Greek: Ταλαός) was the king of Argos and one of the Argonauts.[1] He was the son of Bias and Pero. His wife was Lysimache, daughter of Abas (also known as Eurynome, Lysippe[2] or Lysianassa, daughter of Polybus[3]). He was the father of Adrastus, Aristomachus, Astynome, Eriphyle, Mecisteus, Metidice, and Pronax.[4][5][6]
