--------------------

For other uses, see Scamander (disambiguation).

In Greek mythology, Scamander (Skamandros, Xanthus) was a river god, son of Oceanus and Tethys according to Hesiod. Scamander is also thought of as the river god, son of Zeus. By Idaea, he fathered King Teucer.

Scamander fought on the side of the Trojans during the Trojan War (Iliad XX, 73/74; XXI). Scamander was also said to have fought against Achilles, who was only saved due to the intervention of Hera, Athena and Hephaestus. In this context, he is the personification of the Scamander River that flowed from Mount Ida across the plain beneath the city of Troy, joining the Hellespont north of the city. The Achaeans, according to Homer, had set up their camp near its mouth, and their battles with the Trojans were fought on the plain of Scamander.

According to Homer, he was called Xanthos by gods and Scamander by men, which might indicate that the former name refers to the god and the latter one to the river itself.

In Greek mythology, Scamander (Skamandros, Xanthus) (Greek: Σκάμανδρος; Ξάνθος) was a river god, son of Oceanus and Tethys according to Hesiod. Scamander is also thought of as the river god, son of Zeus. By Idaea, he fathered King Teucer.

Scamander fought on the side of the Trojans during the Trojan War (Iliad XX, 73/74; XXI), after the Greek soldier Achilles insulted him. Scamander was also said to have attempted to kill Achilles three times, and the hero was only saved due to the intervention of Hera, Athena and Hephaestus. In this context, he is the personification of the Scamander River that flowed from Mount Ida across the plain beneath the city of Troy, joining the Hellespont north of the city. The Achaeans, according to Homer, had set up their camp near its mouth, and their battles with the Trojans were fought on the plain of Scamander.

According to Homer, he was called Xanthos by gods and Scamander by men, which might indicate that the former name refers to the god and the latter one to the river itself.

Scamander (or Skamandros) was a River-God of the Troad, in Mysia, Anatolia (modern Turkey).

The River Skamandros was the largest river of the plain of Troy. Its headwaters were in the foothills of Mount Ida, and its mouth near the entrance to the Hellespont. Several of its tributaries were also personified as River-Gods, such as the Simoeis, Heptaporos, and Kebren. The major neighbouring rivers were the Rhodios to the east, and Satnoeis in the south.

речен бог на едноименната река в Троя. Син е на Океан и Тетия. Океанид. Свързан е с царския род.

В "Илиада" [2] многократно се споменава Ксант и желанието му да помогне на троянците: „Реката в сърцето си гневно избухна мислейки как да застави Ахила божествен веднага боя опасен да спре да избави троянците от гибел. “ —превод Александър Милев, Блага Димитрова

Съвременното име на тази река е Карамендерес. Намира се във вилает (област) Чанаккале, Западна Турция.
