Not to be confused with Ceyx, husband of Alcyone. See also Ceyx (disambiguation).

In Greek mythology, Ceyx was a king of Trachis in Thessaly. He received Herakles[1], and Herakles's sons later fled to him.[2] Some accounts make him Amphitryon's nephew, with Herakles building Trachis for him [3]. Muller[4] supposes that the marriage of Ceyx and his connection with Heracles were the subjects of ancient poems.

This Ceyx is father of the Hippasus who died fighting as an ally of Herakles.[5]
