Γαλατης

When Heracles passed through Gaul on his way from stealing Geryon's cattle, he founded the city of Alesia. The daughter of a local prince, who had never found a husband worthy of her, loved him; he fathered a son called Galates, whose bravery earned him rule over the whole of Gaul. Later, Galates gave his name to Galatia, the land of the Galatians (see also CELTUS).
