Phineus  (FIN-yoos or FIN-ee-us)

King of Salmydessus who offended the gods and was punished by an infestation of Harpies, razor-clawed birds with human female faces who disrupted his meals and defecated on his food. In thanks to the Argonauts for ridding him of these pests, he warned them of the Clashing Rocks ahead on their route to Colchis in quest of the Golden Fleece.
