Axylus (Ἄξυλος) is mentioned in Book VI of Homer's Iliad.

Diomedes, expert in war cries, killed Axylus,
son of Teuthranus, a rich man, from well-built Arisbe.
People really loved him, for he lived beside a road,
welcomed all passers-by into his home.
But not one of those men he'd entertained now stood
in front of him, protecting him from wretched death.
Diomedes took the lives of two men--Axylus,
and his attendant Calesius, his charioteer.
So both men went down into the underworld.
