the myths, the founder of ancient Nauplia was Nauplios,
son of Poseidon and the city took part in the Argonauts'
expedition. Better known, however, was to be another
Nauplios, a great expert in naval arts and father of
Palamedes who was an inventor, doctor, astronomer, poet,
mathematician and philosopher. Palamedes' misfortune
was that during the Trojan war he clashed with Odysseus
who slandered him as collaborating with Priam, resulting
in Palamedes being put to death before the walls of
Troy. To avenge his death, Nauplios seduced the wives
of the Greek princes one by one, but failed in the case
of Penelope the wife of his great enemy.
