There are several characters named Amphion (Template:Lang-el; gen.: Ἀμφίονος) in Greek mythology:

  • Amphion, son of Zeus and Antiope, and twin brother of Zethus (see Amphion and Zethus). Together they are famous for building Thebes. Amphion married Niobe, and killed himself after the loss of his wife and children (the Niobids) at the hands of Apollo and Artemis. One of his surviving children was the daughter now renamed as Chloris. However, other accounts (including Homer, in the Odyssey) claim that Chloris was a daughter of another Amphion, ruler of Minyan Orchomenus (see below).
  • Amphion, son of Iasus and Persephone (a mortal woman, not the wife of Hades). This Amphion is an obscure character, said to be a king of the Minyans of Orchomenus, in Boeotia.
  • Amphion, son of Hyperasius and Hypso, an Argonaut.
  • Amphion the Epean, who took part in the Trojan War.
