ExtractHesione (Ἡσιόνη), in mythology, (1) an Oceanid (see nymphs), wife of *Prometheus (Aesch.PV560). (2) Wife of *Nauplius(1) and mother of *Palamedes, Oeax, and Nausimedon (Apollod. 2. 23). (3) Daughter of *Laomedon (ibid. 3. 146). After her rescue from the sea-monster by *Heracles, she was taken prisoner by him when he captured Troy, given as the prize of valour to *Telamon (1), and granted leave to save any prisoner she chose; she therefore bought (ἐπρίατο) her brother Podarces for a nominal price, and he was henceforth called Πρίαμος (*Priam).
