NAMA Pélée, Achille & Chiron

Peleus consigns Akhilles to Khiron's care, white-ground lekythos by the Edinburgh Painter, c. 500 BC


Kronos & Philyra

Spouse & Lovers



Khiron was the centaur who raised Akhilles, Asklepios, and Jason. In some versions he is the only centaur who was wise instead of foolish, in other versions he is a son of Kronos and Philyra, and Kronos took the form of a horse so Rhea would not know it was him.


Another name for Khiron is Chiron, that name can easily be mistaken for Charon, Hades'.
