Aloeus was a demigod and a son of Poseidon.
Aloeus was the son of Poseidon and Canace. He had two wives, the first being Iphimedeia and Eriboea. He was also the father of Salmoneus (who founded Elis) and Pancratis.
Otus and Ephialtes were giants who made war on the gods and captured Ares the god of war. His wife Eriboea reported this to the gods, for which Aloeus had her flayed alive.
