The son of Oicleus and grandson of the seer Melampous, he took part in the expedition of the Argonauts and was one of the seven leaders to march against Thebes. By his wife Eriphyle he had two sons., Alcaeon and Amphilochus, and two daughters. When in the course of the battle against Thebes Amphiaraos retreated and was in danger of succumbing to the attacks of Periclymenos, Zeus opened the earth with a thunderbolt and he was swallowed up in the earth with his chariot and two horses. Amphiaraos was worshipped as a seer and had two sanctuaries, one in Thebes and another at Oropus. With the passage of time, that of Oropus became the most celebrated and besides being an oracle it became a center for medical cures. [p. 59] Traces of the Amphiaraeum exist to this day. [pp. 59-60]
