In Greek mythology, Cestrinus was the only son of Helenus and Andromache. According to Pausanias, Cestrinus was upset when Andromache's son Molossus succeeded Helenus to the throne of Epirus.[1] Taking a group of Epirotian volunteers, he claimed the region of Epirus north of the River Thyamis and it is because of him that the region was named Cestrine.[2] According to another tradition, Cestrinus was king of Cimmerian Bosporus, being equated with King Genger.
